Photographer Stephen Wilkes’s Day to Night Series is a unique collection that perfectly captures the energetic ebb and flow from dawn ’til dark of different well-known landmarks around the world. In each of Wilkes’ Day to Night creations, he masterfully blends thirty to fifty photos into one fluid image to seamlessly create surrealist cityscapes.
As Wilkes explains, “I imagined changing time in a single photograph. I began to explore this fascination with time in a new series of photographs called: “Day to Night”. Photographing from one camera angle continuously for up to 15 hours, capturing the fleeting moments throughout the day and night. A select group of these images are then blended into one photograph, capturing the changing of time within a single frame.
The results are stunning. They glow. They invite the viewer to come in, look closer, feel the pulse of a location that never sleeps as it moves from the early morning hours into lit up urban darkness.
