Stephen Wilkes: Day to Night

Gallery, Photography, Art Talk
Can a photograph inspire and create change? For photographer Stephen Wilkes, his five-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 audiences 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 the lens over a full day. Wilkes will discuss the months-long process of turning 1,500 photographs into a single image.
