The obvious answer is that you have to place an object of mass for the light to reflect off for us to be aware that light is present.

do you agree?
No, you can see that light(em waves) are being emmited by any accelerating charge. You have to account for the momentum and energy.

You do not need for the photon to interact with anything to demonstrate that it exists. You can also do it by showing its creation.
