J. Henry Fair

J. Henry Fair is best known for the photographic series, “Industrial Scars” (2010-), which portrays the devastation that environmental destruction has wrought throughout the world. The photographs are descriptive, with subjects such as drilling, mining, farming, and global warming, and yet formally abstract. Clean and color-saturated aerial images contort beauty with waste, nature with human actions, as in his images of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Continually bringing important issues to the public conscience, Fair’s images—described by the New York Times as the “toxic sublime”—walk the line between subjective and objective, art and documentation.
