Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman have developed a range of photographicprojects together over many decades, approaching collaboration as a form ofconversation. Informing their various series are interests in psychological landscapesand the domestic world. For their Still Moving, Moving Still series, Ciurej and Lochmanworked with the Rod Slemmons Camera Archive and the Chicago Cluster Project tomake contemporary experiments with historical cameras. Using an 1893 KodakBullsEye #2 Camera, with modern retrofitting and the use of contemporary film, theartists created multiple images of the Milwaukee River using overlapping exposures.The Milwaukee River is well known for its historical importance for hundreds of yearsas a life-sustaining waterway for the Indigenous peoples of the United States andCanada. However, during the last two centuries, the river has been over-used fortourism and economic development. Embracing the quirks of a camera made in the1800s, Ciurej and Lochman re-photographed the negatives they produced with aniPhone in panorama mode. This digital intervention allowed for a visual quality thatimitates the fragmented human experience of observation as well as the precarity ofnatural resources.
Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman began collaborating in 1978 while they werestudents at the Institute of Design in Chicago. Much of their work has involvedcreating visual narratives around gender and subjects such as aging or rites ofpassage.
