Review

“That they look oddly ravishing does not obscure the ravaging they depict.”
New York Times


“These aren’t just pretty pictures of horrible things. The images-usually aerial shots-are an education in environmental impacts, the otherwise unseen costs of modern living.”
Bloomberg

The stunningly beautiful images in this publication offer contrast to the emergency message for earth's inhabitants about what is taking place - the destruction of the environment in which we live. The reader is drawn by the images to the messages contained in accompanying essays. These essays explain to the viewer the complexities of this ongoing destruction, along with hopefully awakening the reader to the need for a zealous acceptance of responsibility in halting the senseless attack on the world around us. Artist J. Henry Fair is a passionate activist whose zeal jumps off the pages of this publication, while he personally lives an exemplary life of environmental concern.
'The Day After Tomorrow' is a must read for families(children) and community strategists in planning for the world in which they wish to live, today and tomorrow.

Mr. Fair has brought art and photography to a whole new level! This book is a wake up call on global pollution. Seeing the damage mankind has brought upon himself from a birds eye view is amazing. This book is a must have for our children and our future!

This book has really opened my eyes into the effects of industrialisation on the environment. It was the breath-taking photography that drew me to the book to begin with, but reading along the essays inside have really inspired me.
I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about the effect we are having on our planet.
Perfect coffee table book, that gets everyone talking!

There are so many problems with this book. One is that J. Henry Fair's aerial pictures of industrial sites and coal mines are staggeringly beautiful. Enormous adjoining ruby and topaz pools, rimmed in blinding white might contain nasty chemicals, but they are wonderful to look at. A paper mill aerating its waste near a river causes foamy deposits that look like childhood bath time writ large. Putting the viewer at a remove from the devastation lets us identify even less with the people, animals and plants that are being affected by the pollutants.

Another problems is the essays that pepper the book. Written by well-meaning friends of the environment, they give off a sense of hopelessness about being able to do anything to stop the behemoth industrial machine that Fair portrays. But also, they give the reader no solid action to take, apart from giving up paper products. There's a kind of solemn dreariness about the essays that makes them hard to take a call to action.

It's hard to imagine Americans voluntarily doing without paper, aluminum, coal and the many other products that make our lives so comfortable. Extracting the minerals that power our lifestyles is not pretty. But this book just makes us feel bad about our consumption without offering real means for weaning ourselves from it.

But, Mother Nature help me, the pictures are pretty.
