Welcome to Episode 151 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast.
This week's episode features the winner of our inaugural Landscape Photography Conservation Award, J Henry Fair. If you are not familiar with Henry's work, you are in for a real treat. His most recent project involved photographing the impacts of consumerism from an airplane, including impacts on the land from mining, oil and gas extraction, and more. The results of this work are encapsulated in his 200-page book, "Industrial Scars." Henry sent me a copy of his book and I was absolutely amazed by the beauty and horror portrayed in his images. It truly is a magnificent book.
We covered a wide variety of topics, including:
Aerial photography techniques.
The environmental crisis.
The politicization of the environment.
Photography as a tool for social change.
What photographers can do to make a difference in this world.
Henry is offering a discount on his book for patrons of the podcast, so if you are interested in purchasing it, head to Patreon to get the link to that discount. I'm always looking at ways to provide value to the people that financially support the podcast on Patreon, so I hope it helps! Thank you for your support.
Before we get started, I wanted to let you know about a special opportunity to meet me at the upcoming Nightscaper Conference in Kanab, Utah from May 20 to May 22. If you listened to my recent episode with Royce Bair, you'll know that the conference is going to be amazing. Royce has assembled the world's best night photographers for an incredible experience that surely won't disappoint you. I'll also be doing some fun podcasting and panel discussions at the conference. If you're interested, check it out. Also, you can use the code "PAYNE100" for a $100 dollar discount on the conference. I hope to see you there!
And lastly, just be warned, Henry is opinionated. Enjoy.
