Beastly Beauty

At first glance these pictures are quite beautiful, but in fact they reveal something far more ugly.

J Henry Fair's spectacular aerial images show the devastation man has wreaked on America.

Pollution is exposed on a massive scale, creating striking vivid colours that highlight the scars of spillages, open cast mining, chemical and oil leaks, industrial decay and deforestation

Agent orange: This picture is clearly of the sea but the dramatic lines and swirls are oil from BP's Deepwater Horizon spills at the Gulf Macondo well as it floats on the Gulf of Mexico

A river bleached white with the waste of aluminium production snakes through the parched Louisiana landscape before emerging into a muddy red lake in Darrow where the colours swirl together.
