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.
