Images of Work: The Photographs of Ken Light
Fall 2003, Rosenberg Library & Learning Resources, 4th Floor

Ken Light is a social documentary photographer whose work has appeared in books, magazines and exhibitions. His new book, Witness in our Time: Working Lives of Documentary Photographers was published by Smithsonian Press in 2000 and is in the City College Library.

These photographs of people at work were first exhibited in 1978. Most of the images are of foundry, factory and construction workers. In addition to this body of work on western industrial workers, Light has also authored Delta Time, Freedom on My Mind, To the Promised Land, With These Hands, and In the Fields.
