National Geographic exhibit “Day to Night: In the Field with Stephen Wilkes” features images that warp time and feature hundreds of tiny stories each. Wilkes shoots up to 2,000 images from a fixed camera angle for up to 36 hours and blends approximately 50 images to into a final photograph “that seamlessly captures one location and as it transitions from day to night”. The series formed during Wilkes’ time in 2017 on assignment documenting bird migrations for National Geographic.
“The intricate detail of these mega-prints encourages people to linger, look slowly, and notice the details. There is so much packed into a single print – each measuring roughly 7 feet tall and 12 feet wide.”
