Michael Light is a San Francisco-based photographer and pilot, focused on the environment and how contemporary American culture relates to it. His work is concerned both with the politics of that relationship and the seductions of landscape representation, particularly as found in the arid Western spaces of America.

For the last fifteen years, Light has been photographing the settled and unsettled areas of American space, using a large format camera, pursuing themes of mapping, vertigo, human impact on the land, and various aspects of geologic time and the sublime. A private pilot, Light owns a small, two-seat, high-wing aircraft specifically designed for aerial photographic work.
