Day to Night
- Stephen Wilkes, Photographer
Can a photograph inspire and create change?
For photographer Stephen Wilkes, his 5-year photographic study of Ellis Island’s long abandoned medical wards helped secure $6 million toward the restoration of the south side of the island. His work documenting the ravages of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy has brought heightened awareness to the realities of global climate change.
In this presentation, he’ll take you behind the scenes of his most defining project, Day to Night. 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. Stephen will discuss the months-long process of turning 1,500 photographs into a single image.
Stephen Wilkes is an award-winning photographer whose most defining project, Day to Night, began in 2009.
