Ballast Key is a backcountry island seven miles west of Key West, owned by David Wolkowsky, a friend of Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote. Wolkowsky died recently at 99. Under the guidance of the Nature Conservancy, the island was donated to the National Wildlife Refuge system to become a backcountry research station. South of Southernmost is a photography project that documents the arc of the island’s story as it reorients from the human to the wild.

For well over a year, against a backdrop of headlines consumed by the pandemic, Ohio-based printmaker Nicholas Hill has scanned the paper each day for people glimpsed in the backgrounds of news photos, then foregrounded them as raw, brush and ink drawings across the paper’s surface. Numbering over 3,800 so far (with just a selection on view in Key West), the drawings serve as a reminder of lives lost.
