"South of Southernmost" by Mark Hedden

Thru Thu 01/27/2022

Ballast Key is a backcountry island seven miles west of Key West, south of the Southernmost point, once listed for sale for $15.8 million. It was owned and used as a getaway for the influential and the creative by David Wolkowsky, a friend of Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote, and a member of a family with deep and storied Florida roots. Wolkowsky died recently at 99. Under the guidance of the Nature Conservancy, the island was donated to the National Wildlife Refuge system, with the intention of it becoming a backcountry research station. So this amazing, coveted, living fantasy of an island is going back to nature, or at least to being primarily managed for the benefit of the natural world. South of Southernmost is a photography project that documents the shift in Ballast Key’s gravity, as the arc of its story switches from the human to the wild. supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Hunter Ward Foundation and the Anne McKee Artists Fund more info at https://tskw.org/south-of-southernmost-by-mark-hedden/
