Art and environmental activism come together in this exhibition by celebrated American Photographer J Henry Fair. His superbly beautiful aerial images are appealing and bold- at first glance compositions of abstract shapes and colors. A closer look reveals them to be the detritus of industrial processes. The ethical implication of the photographs leaves viewers pondering the injustice of the human impact on nature. Henry’s work has appeared in major publications including National Geographic, Vanity Fair, and Smithsonian Magazine. His newest work, Industrial Scars, received an Independent Publisher Book Award for “Most Likely to Save the Planet”. Henry’s photographs and a limited number of his books will be available for sale.
