Why doesn't the adjective "ganz" take the suffix "-em"?

Why isn't this sentence like this:

Vieles sieht man in ganzem neuen Licht ?

In this sentence, "ganz" is an adverb. Adverbs don't change.

To add to what christian said: 'ganz' is an adverb because it qualifies 'neu', not 'Licht'.

Als immer, danke schon fur die Erklärung christian und wataya! Ich hätte das nicht herausfinden können.
