At B&H’s OPTIC 2019, photographer Stephen Wilkes discussed his evolution as a photographer, since he was a teenager. His career has been a series of personal projects that helped him shape his vision and learn that his photographs could inspire change and make a difference. His latest project, Day to Night, looks at a variety of landscapes over a 24-48-hour period, and the changes that take place during that time. For inspiration, motivation, and a few laughs, check out Wilkes’s presentation. BIO: Stephen Wilkes has been widely recognized for his fine art and commercial photography. Wilkes has won numerous awards and honors and continues to exhibit his work in galleries and museums. Wilkes’s newest body of work is titled Day to Night™. He photographs from a fixed camera angle, continuously, for up to 15 hours. A select group of images are then digitally blended into one photograph, capturing the changing of time in a single frame.  Wilkes shoots editorials for major publications, as well as advertising campaigns for many of the country's foremost agencies and corporations.
