Quigley used light to create photographic abstraction, working with a prism to photograph light as if it were a solid form. His Light Abstraction series was first exhibited in 1932 at the Philadelphia Art Alliance. In 1934 his work was included in a group exhibition at the Cleveland Museum alongside art by some of the most important modernist photographers of the time—Margaret Bourke-White, Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, and Edward Weston.
