Jill Stuckey

Jill Stuckey is an enthusiast of energy efficiency, alternative energy, and an outdoor nature photographer. In 1992, she traded private industry for state employment and went to work for the Georgia Environmental Protection Division. While working for the EPD, Stuckey was an integral part of the effort that led to the installation of a power line to Ossabaw Island. It was during this time she became friends with the representatives of The Ossabaw Island Foundation as well as Sandy West and Roger Parker. As a result of these relationships, Stuckey has been able to spend much time practicing and fine-tuning her photography on extended visits to Ossabaw. When she has not been on Ossabaw over the last decades, Stuckey is often in Plains, Georgia, where she serves on multiple boards with Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. She is a member of Maranatha Baptist Church, where she assists on Sunday’s with the large crowds attending President Carter’s Sunday school class.

Ossabaw Island has meant many things to many people. For its earliest residents, Ossabaw was a bountiful place to live and gather yaupon holly. For relative latecomers it has been a source of live oak lumber, a series of brutal slave plantations, a winter retreat for northern industrialists, a cattle ranch, an artists’ retreat, and Georgia’s first Heritage Preserve. Despite the long history of a give-and-take relationship between humans and nature, Ossabaw now exudes a strong sense of untamed wildness that is part of its appeal to artists, scientists, and nature lovers alike. This book takes an interdisciplinary approach, combining photography and public history to delve into the island’s layered human and natural past and present.
