Industrial Scars: Landscapes Destructed by Industrialization

Industrial Scars is an environmental photography project by American photographer J Henry Fair, which explores the detritus of our consumer society, through large-scale aerial photo shoots and accompanying documentary research. Industrial Scars subjects range from oil drilling and coal ash waste to large-scale agricultural production and abandoned mining operations. In small airplanes, Fair circles above industrial areas and photographs with a bird's eye perspective the effects these operations have on our environment. Through his project, J Henry Fair has called attention to environmental and political problems in different regions of the world including the global warming process, environmental pollution, and habitat destruction - all of which are illustrated in Fair's photographs.
