Our Interview with Angie Johnson

This is an extended version of our interview with Angie Johnson that we featured in the July 2010 issue of the Legends and Lore of Illinois. Download the entire issue by clicking here.

Angie Johnson is a cemetery photographer, ‘find a grave’ contributor, restoration helper, paranormal investigator, traveler to unknown places, and a short Irish redhead that speaks her mind.

When did you first realize that you loved cemetery photography? What about it is so attractive for you?

Since I used to run around naked in them on full moons as a teenager….. What?…..I thought everyone done that!

When I finished doing everyone of them in my county. The feeling of accomplishment and going where no one had been for a long time. I got to where I was enjoying the me time and traveling to new places. The best thing of it all is meeting new people. Farmers, neighbors, kids, older folks, genealogy people…the list goes on. I couldn’t tell you how many times I have met with someone who had a story of the cemetery or memories of being there as a child. It is almost like a light in their eye. It is well worth stopping and talking with others when I reach my destination.
