PhilosopherQueen writes: Heidi is a photographer who has done a book documenting the history of the mental hospital in Traverse City that is now being renovated for use as condos and shops. She will have her own condo and studio in this building when it is finished. She took us on a tour there last fall (we had to wear hard hats).

Remembering Heidi Johnson

Remembering Heidi Johnson, originally uploaded by mstephens7.

I am saddened to read of Heidi’s passing this morning. The community has lost a true artist. 

I knew her first by her photos of Building 50. We met years ago when she was setting up a showing at Borders in TC. We met again a year later at Building 50. She escorted us on a brief photo tour of the basements and upper floors of the building. Over the next couple of years, I enjoyed meeting up with her and chatting about Building 50, etc.

I am glad to have taken a photo of her on one of the tours, capturing the “Angels in the Architecture” she so loved:

And she snapped this of me on that first tour:

My condolences go out to her family and friends. I will treasure the digital photos I have, her book and the memories she captured in her work.

Reed City MI: Old Rugged Cross

Reed City MI: Old Rugged Cross, originally uploaded by mstephens7.

In the 70s, my parents and I always camped at Spider Lake. On the way up old 131, we passed Reed city, where the man, George Bennard, who wrote the gospel hymm "The Old Rugged Cross" lived. They put a big cross out on the highway and Mom would always wake me up to see it. I thought it was long gone, but it was replaced by a newer cross and moved to a museum devoted to Bennard and his time in Reed City.
