In The Incredible Hobo, Light depicts himself as a quintessential drifter in a large, open landscape that seems, deceptively, to offer beauty and opportunity. Light's Hobo series conveys the artist's complex self-image, as the images are done in variations of white, red, and black to represent Light's mixed ethnic heritage.
