Ken Light is a social documentary photographer whose work has appeared in books, magazines and exhibitions. He has exhibited internationally in over 175 one-person and group shows, including one person shows at the International Center for Photography, S.E. Museum of Photography and Smith College. Light's work is part of numerous collections, including the San Francisco MOMA, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the International Center of Photography and the American Museum of Art at the Smithsonian. The images in this collection date from Light's work in the early 1990s documenting rural Black poverty, cotton and the southern landscape; some of these images were included in Light's book entitled "Delta Time."
The Ken Light photographs were donated to the Anacostia Community Museum in 2003 by Jo Whaley and Stanley and Dorothea Light.
