Steve Johnson's blog

I seem to have been doing more reading than writing recently, as far as the blog is concerned anyway. In this fallow month or more, I’ve started writing four potential posts but none has allowed me to see where it is heading and each has therefore stalled. I have hope of a couple of them […]

Food.4.Health

In tracing the food of my great-great-great-grandparents I returned to the land of my ancestors – England – and life in the middle ages. Knowledge of food customs and eating habits before that era is limited, incomplete or ambiguous due to reliance on accounts written after-the-fact with uncertain translations. The year 1066, a significant year […]

Individual Practice

Camera-less photography has always been an interest of mine because of the more abstract and uncontrolled outcomes you can create compared to photography with a camera. As a fine art inspired photographer, I have played around with chemigram cyanotype and photogram processes previously but am aware of the wide variety of camera-less approaches of recording […]

Morbid Art History

As might be the case with others reading this blog post, I am familiar with Alfred Munnings (1878-1959) because of the artist’s infamous diatribe against modern art in 1949. During a dinner at the Royal Academy (of which he was the President), Munnings derided the work of modern artists like Pablo Picasso, lamenting the taste […]

Run 'til you Drop!

It seems like ages since the last half marathon and what a difference an extra 24 hours makes compared to the shorter rest before last week’s half. It’s been a decent week of training, 4 x 6 mile runs, a circuit training session, a TRX suspension training session and a HIIT session, all finished off […]

Scruffy's Scratchpad

On this day in 1478, George Plantagenet, younger brother of King Edward IV of England, was executed in a most unusual way. George was a key player in a real-life Game of Thrones, the 30-year series of civil wars known as the Wars of the Roses. At stake was control of the English throne, and […]

Like Sir John Soane’s Museum, Strawberry Hill is one of those places it seems a near-miracle to find arriving intact in the present. Except, of course, that Strawberry Hill isn’t really intact, most of the time, meaning that unlike the Soane it’s been stripped of its contents, encrustations that seem almost part of its flesh. […]
