About The Artwork

These patterns are made by giant oscillating excavators working in a coal mine. I have flown many flights over this mine over the years, each time seeing new details, and getting new pictures. Sometimes, the details I see cannot be captured on that flight because of lighting or wind or other factors, and I go back repeatedly to try and get the pictures I saw in my head.

"The vivid color photographs of J Henry Fair lead an uneasy double life as potent records of environmental pollution and as ersatz evocations of abstract painting...information and form work together, to devastating effect." -Roberta Smith, The New York Times Photographer J Henry Fair is best known for his Industrial Scars series, in which he researches our world's most egregious environmental disasters and creates images that are simultaneously stunning and horrifying, and more closely resemble abstract paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe and Jackson Pollock than what the collective views as reality. Mr. Fair's work has been featured in segments on The TODAY Show, CNN, NPR's Marketplace, and WDR German TV, as well as in most major publications, including The New York Times, National Geographic, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, Harper's Magazine, Smithsonian Magazine, and GQ. Additionally, Mr. Fair's work travels around the world in fine art exhibitions at major museums, galleries, and educational institutions. Mr. Fair has served as Artist-in-Residence at some of the nation's top educational institutions for art and environmental studies, including Dartmouth College, Colorado College, Vanderbilt University, and most recently Swarthmore College this past February. Additionally, Mr. Fair maintains an active lecture schedule, in which he presents photographic symposia to audiences in the US and abroad. Recent engagements have included Bloomberg, The Collegiate School, and Die Spedition. After a hugely successful presentation at the TED Talks conference, High Energy, in Berlin in November 2011, Mr. Fair has just completed his second TED Talk, this time at Wake Forest University's conference, Defining the Future, held in February, 2013. Mr. Fair is also a regular blogger on art and the environment for the Huffington Post and NRDC's OnEarth Magazine, giving readers a first-hand look inside the important issues he studies and photographs. Mr. Fair's book, The Day After Tomorrow: Images of Our Earth in Crisis was released in February, 2011, published by powerHouse Books in cooperation with Random House. In January, 2012, Mr. Fair's new multi-media piece, Das Lied von der Erde (Heute), was premiered in Germany by the Weimar Staatskapelle. This stunning performance piece re-imagines Gustav Mahler's classic orchestral work, pairing it with an animated series of Fair's electrifying environmental photographs. Also in 2012, Mr.
