Photographer Stephen Wilkes is one of America’s most iconic photographers, widely recognised for his fine art, editorial and commercial work. Day to Night™, Wilkes’ most defining project, began in 2009. These epic cityscapes and landscapes portrayed from a fixed camera angle for up to 30 hours capture fleeting moments of humanity as light passes in front of his lens over the course of a full day. A select group of these images are then seamlessly blended into one photograph, capturing the changing of time within a single frame.
"In March of 2015 I travelled to Tanzania, Africa to photograph a Day to Night™ during the peak of migration. After weeks of scouting, I discovered a watering hole within the Serengeti National Park. We built a platform approximately 18 ft. above the ground with a crocodile blind on top, which I photographed from and remained inside of with my assistant for 26 consecutive hours, capturing these incredible species coming together to share this one sacred resource: water. The best frames were then seamlessly blended together based on where they were in time, showing the actual transition as day gives way to night."
