Michael Light is an aerial photographer currently based in San Francisco. He focuses on the relationship between contemporary American culture and the environment. Michael uses large format cameras to take breathtaking photos of landscapes as he flies over them. The bird’s-eye-view perspective of his shots highlight how urban expansion is forever changing the landscape. Once arid deserts are being converted into neatly landscaped suburbia. Michael’s work has been exhibited both on the national as well as the international level. His work is also displayed in The New York Public Library, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, The Getty Research Library,and the the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
