National Geographic Live: Day To Night

Mar 13, 2020


Photographer Stephen Wilkes built his career capturing iconic images meant to inspire and create change. The nostalgia of California’s Highway 1. The decay of Ellis Island. The ravages of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. In his most defining project, Day to Night, he photographs the changing of time from a fixed camera position over the course of a full day and seamlessly blends the results into a single photograph—capturing fleeting moments of humanity as light passes in front of his lens.
