"If there's a silver lining to be found amongst all the wear and tear humans put on our planet," writes Jerry James Stone at The Atlantic, "it could very well be found in the photography of J. Henry Fair."

"His photographs of oil spills, industrial pollution and coal mining are so eye-catching they almost extenuate the industrial scars you are witnessing -- almost," continues Stone. "While media coverage of such degradation, like the Gulf oil spill, has been confined to what can best be described as disaster porn, Fair's work -- both artistic and cerebral -- could easily be mistaken for Abstract Expressionism."

Stone makes an excellent point -- never before has bad looked quite so good. Take a look:
