“Day to Night” collection of photos is the latest project of a well-known and widely recognized US photographer Stephen Wilkes. He creates unique images of major cities, capturing night and day into a single photograph.
The whole process of making such incredible photos is long and exhausting, but undoubtedly worthwhile. For each photograph Stephen spends 15 hours up in the air. He shoots from 1,000 to 1,400 individual photos that are later blended into one image. His first pictures are usually taken by daybreak. Then he starts collecting moments until he has enough material to tell the story of a single place.
The settings and locations are all prominent. However, the photos are also as much about who is in them as where they are taken. Stephen captures thousands of everyday routines, happening side by side and blend them in a single moment. The final result is amazing – you can see as they perfectly flow together. That’s what makes his work so intriguing.
