Julie Lindemann and John Shimon
Manitowoc 1961, 1957 — 2015 Appleton
Marital and professional partners the late Lindemann and Shimon shared a joint tenure appointment at Lawrence University. They grew up in the countryside and met as students at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Their collaborative archive of work tells the stories of fellow Wisconsin residents using classical photographic processes—expressions of interest in the history of photography along with the images produced. The duo eventually returned to their rural roots and focused on the J. Shimon & J. Lindemann Archive Trust. Their work has been shown widely and in 2014 the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel named them Artist(s) of the Year.
