Artists who work as a couple

Posted this morning on Andy Adams' Flak Photo network is this list of "artists who work as couples".  This is an interesting resource and worth re-posting. When artists work together they face an array of challenges different from the solitary practitioner. How to define boundaries and responsibilities, and division of process. In the field of photography Bernd and Hilla Becher, seen above,  are probably the best known artist team.

I think when two artists are working together it is a great advantage for both. They can inspire each other, watch each other's success and progress, provide help and support. An these are not secondary issues for any artist.
