Trimmed landscape, by Michael Light

"Michael Light: Lake Las Vegas / Black Mountain." Book. Radius Books.
metalocus, ALEX DURO.
Radius Books gathers the photographs by the excellent Michael Light which are focused on two specific locations in the American landscape: Lake Las Vegas and Black Mountain.
