Day to Night, photographer Stephen Wilkes’ most defining project, began in 2009. Working from a fixed camera angle, Wilkes captured the fleeting moments of humanity and light as time passed. After more than 24 hours of photographing and over 1500 images taken, he selected the best moments of the day and night. Using time as a guide, all of these moments were seamlessly blended into a single photograph in post-production, visualizing places that are part of our collective memory.
For this project, Wilkes and his team traveled to some of the world’s most well-known locations, including the Grand Canyon, Paris, Venice and several celebrated places in New York City, such as the Flatiron Building and Coney Island. In each image, the landscape is beautifully captured with vibrant color and the most incredible detail.
For more than two decades, Stephen Wilkes (b. 1957) has been widely recognized for his fine art and commercial photography. His photographs have appeared in The New York Times, Vanity Fair, and Time, among many others. Day to Night has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning as well as dozens of other prominent media outlets.
