    Co-Founder of the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, New York


    J Henry Fair tells stories about people and things that affect people, principally with photographs that are immediately compelling, but contain many subsequent layers of information to be made available to the inquisitive audience. He is based in New York City and Berlin, but travels constantly. His new book, “Industrial Scars: The Hidden Costs of Consumption”, a story about how things are made and what are the consequences left behind, is being published by Papadakis of London.

    J Henry`s work has been featured by The TODAY Show, CNN, NPR’s Marketplace, and WDR German TV, as well as most major publications, including The New York Times, National Geographic, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Die Zeit, Le Figaro, Harper’s, Smithsonian, and Scientific American. Additionally, J Henry`s work travels around the world as exhibitions at major museums, galleries, and educational institutions.

    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.
