Ranch by Michael Light( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and German and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fascination with the life of freedom associated with cowboys and the American West is integral to the mythology of our time and culture. In his cinematic novel Ranch, Michael Light reveals as much about the myth as he does about the specific traditional California ranch that he photographs. "Depictions of the West as a vast garden of romantic innocence and male possibility abound, but the claustrophobic violence and domination required to turn the dream into reality are perhaps less familiar."--the publisher. Part of a new series of books with gravure illustrations, this monograph is exquisitely reproduced and a must for those interested in the myth and reality of the West

Michael Light: Lake Lahontan/Lake Bonneville by Michael Light( Book )

2 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

San Francisco?based photographer Michael Light's (born 1963) fourth Radius book in his aerial series' Some Dry Space: An Inhabited West' journeys into the vast geological space and time of the Great Basin -- the heart of a storied national "void" that is both actual and psychological, treasured as much for its tabula rasa possibilities as it is hated for its utter hostility to human needs.0Twelve thousand years ago most of the Great Basin was 900 feet underwater, covered by two vast and now largely evaporated Pleistocene lakes: the Great Salt Lake in Utah and the remnants comprising Pyramid Lake, Honey Lake, the Carson Sink and Walker Lake. The most famous portion of the former Lake Lahontan is the Black Rock Desert, the site of the fastest land speed record and the annual counterculture festival Burning Man. The topography now exposed by both Pleistocene lakes forms a mythic core to American Western concepts of space

Lake Las Vegas ; Black Mountain by Michael Light( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
