J Henry Fair uses pictures to tell stories about people and things that affect people.

He is based in New York City and Berlin, but travels constantly.

His recent book, Industrial Scars: The Hidden Costs of Consumption, published by Papadakis of London, is in to its second edition. His new book, the first of the “Coastline” series, On The Edge: From Combahee To Winyah, was published in spring 2019 and has received fantastic reviews.

Speaking about his “Industrial Scars” series, Roberta Smith, chief art critic of The New York Times said “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.
