Each of Fair's striking images are accompanied by detailed explanations from award-winning science writer, Lewis Smith, who writes about the effects of rampant consumerism on our environment and describes the development of industries through time and across the world. The foreword is written by leading environmentalist, Bill McKibben, of 350.org. Author information: J Henry Fair is an American photographer and environmental activist, based in New York. His work has been featured in most major publications, including 'The New York Times', 'National Geographic' and 'Vanity Fair'.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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.--Roberta Smith "The New York Times "
A collection of beautiful, sometimes abstract, usually ominous photographs... Fair is a lone wolf: a hunter in his own way, combing the landscape for the tracks of the most dangerous animal on earth.--Vice
A vital collection, exposing the state of crumbling landscapes all too often kept from public eye.--Geographical
Think of these images as a surveillance camera for the planet, recording the biggest crimes against nature we've ever imagined. Images like these will be the standards around which we muster.--Bill McKibben, 350.org
Chillingly beautiful.--Audubon Magazine
