NYC’s Day and Night Combined in Stephen Wilkes Photography

For this Thursday we’ve made a series that captures a transitioning of day into night within a single photograph. In fact, this is going to be about a fine art project Stephen Wilkes has produced about New York in the beautiful patches of day and night. “Day to Night embodies a combination of my favorite things to photograph; people on the street melded with epic cityscapes, and the fleeting moments throughout the day and night,” noted the author. Well, we should admit that these exceptionally well done photographs add a surreal dimension to various iconic New York places. To split the landscapes from AM to PM and create such a surrealist effect, Stephen kept his camera at a fixed angle for up to 15 hours, then weaved and blended the shots into one frame. Let’s now contemplate all the bustle of the city within these breathtaking shots. Hope, those of you who have never been to NY will have the time to make it up to see this in person.

        Then why do so many New Yorkers move down to Florida? Keep them up there. We don’t want them here.

    These pictures are great. I love NYC there is something about it that gives you energy-you don’t mind walking and everything is exciting. New Yorkers are the most “with it” people. New York is my favorite city to visit. great restaurants, shopping. These pictures take me back there.
