MIKE LIGHT is a Bay Area photographer focused on the environment and how American culture relates to it. He has exhibited worldwide, and his work has been collected by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Getty Research Library, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, among others.
A private pilot, Light is currently working on an extended aerial photographic survey of the Western states, which won a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2007. Radius Books published the first of a planned multi-volume series of this work, Bingham Mine/Garfield Stack, in the fall of 2009. The second, LA Day/LA Night, was released in April, 2011.
Light is also known for his work in public archives. Full Moon used lunar geological survey imagery made by the Apollo astronauts, and 100 Suns explored military photographs of U.S. atmospheric nuclear detonations.
