Publisher Note

Michael Light’s aerial photographs of the American West show vast landscapes marked by spectacular geographical features, as well as sites that have been unremittingly altered by human activity.

To view the Earth’s surface through the lens of Light’s camera is to confront the visual reality of the place where we live, and to surrender to the vulnerability that such confrontation calls forth. Light focuses is the examination of the poetics and politics of landscape imagery, often employing beautiful and seductive photographs to initiate complex dialogues.
