People have been living on boats off Key West longer than there has been a town called Key West – or even Cayo Hueso. On The Hook is a photo narrative project focussing on this community — a mix of old timers, new comers and sailors who are here to earn enough money to make it to the next deepwater port — the people who live on the edge of the edge.

supported by awards from John S. and James L. Knight FoundationAnne McKee Artists Fund and Florida Keys Council of the Arts, and donations from Holly Merrill, TEAM KAUFELT, Peyton Evans, Judith & Stanley Zabar, Craig Reynolds Landscape Architecture, Mary Ellen’s Bar, Green Parrot, Marquesa Hotel, Manley deBoer, Sue Sullivan, Meridyth & Gordon McIntosh, Gerald Fritz, and Betty Rubenstein.
