Our grandchildren’s debt

"The Last Stand", by J Henry Fair

Photographer and environmental activist J Henry Fair’s beautiful and unsettling work graced the pages of our Interloc conversation way back in SCOPE Issue 1 (go see), and so we’re happy to pass on the news that he was recently asked to speak at TEDx Berlin. A video of the speech is below, and it is worth watching not only as a tour of J Henry’s photography but more importantly as a tour of the most visceral cases of environmental degradation he can portray.

J Henry has also been awarded first prize in 2012′s Earth Through a Lens competition, with his photo of mountaintop removal coal mining (see image at top, which he discusses in his TEDx speech). You’ll want to check out the photography by the other finalists too.
