Stunning Day and Night Compositions Capture Fleeting Passage of Time

Stephen Wilkes has made an undeniable impression on the world of fine art and photography. The best known for his ongoing series, titled Day to Night, the photographer presents iconic cityscapes captured over the course of a day, from sunrise to sunset, in a single frame.

Day to Night is an ongoing global photographic project that began in 2009. Working from a fixed camera angle, Wilkes captures the fleeting moments of humanity and light as time passes. After 24 hours of photographing and over 1500 images taken, he selects the best moments of the day and night. Using time as a guide, all of these moments are seamlessly blended into a single photograph in post-production, visualizing places that are part of our collective memory.

If you’re in New York, be sure to check out Wilkes’ exhibit Day to Night, which opens today at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery and runs through January 9th, 2016.
