Michael Light: Lake Las Vegas/Black MountainMichael Light: Lake Las Vegas/Black Mountain

Published by Radius Books.
Text by Rebecca Solnit, Lucy Lippard.

Until 2008, Nevada was the fastest-growing state in America. But the recession stopped this urbanizing gallop, and Las Vegas froze at exactly the point where its aspirational excesses were most baroque and unfettered. In this third installment of Michael Light's aerial survey of the inhabited West, the photographer hovers intimately over the topography of America's most fevered residential dream, capturing castles on the cheap--some half-built, some foreclosed, some still waiting to spring from empty cul-de-sacs. Throughout, Light finds beauty and empathy amid a visual vertigo of speculation, overreach and environmental delusion. Janus-faced in design, one side of the book plumbs the surrealities of "Lake Las Vegas," a lifestyle resort comprised of 21 Mediterranean-themed communities. The other side dissects nearby Black Mountain and the city's most exclusive--and empty--future community, where a quarter billion dollars was spent on moving earth that has lain dormant for the past six years.

Michael Light: LA Day, LA NightMichael Light: LA Day, LA Night

Published by Radius Books.

The greater Los Angeles area covers 4,850 square miles--the size of a small country--and holds almost 18 million people. Perhaps Americaís largest human creation, it has been vilified and celebrated in equal measure since its inception. Is L.A. the face of the apocalypse, or an ultimate paradise at continentís edge--or both? With LA Day/LA Night, photographer Michael Light continues his aerial examination of the arid American West by bringing together two opposing views of the city in a double-volume set. LA Day stares directly into the sun, which blasts the metropolis in a relentless and specific light. LA Night drifts over the city as it grows darker, and begins to resemble the starry sky vaulted above. Referencing Ed Ruscha, Peter Alexander, Julius Schulman and writers from Philip K. Dick to Raymond Chandler, LA Day/LA Night continues Los Angelesís rich cultural legacy of examining its favorite schizophrenic subject--itself.

Michael Light: Bingham Mine, Garfield StackMichael Light: Bingham Mine, Garfield Stack

Published by Radius Books.
Text by Trevor Paglen. Afterword by Michael Light

Located at 8,000 feet, 20 miles southwest of Salt Lake City in the Oquirrh Mountains, the Bingham Canyon copper mine is the largest manmade excavation in the world. More than half a mile deep, with a rim nearly three miles in width and a smelter stack only 35 feet shorter than the Empire State Building, Bingham has produced more copper than any mine in history. This volume presents San Francisco-based photographer Michael Light's series of breathtaking black-and-white aerial images of the Bingham Mine and Garfield Stack taken in the course of a single day. For the last several years, Light has become known for his aerial photos of the settled and unsettled areas of the American West, which reveal a fascination with geology, mapping and human impact on the land. These series have been published as limited edition, critically acclaimed artist's books; this is Light's first trade-edition release.
