Stephen Wilkes : Day to Night
by Stephen Wilkes and Lyle Rexer


Overview - If you were to stand in one spot at an iconic location for 30 hours and simply observe, never closing your eyes, you still wouldn't be able to take in all the detail and emotion found in a Stephen Wilkes panoramic photograph. Not only does Wilkes shoot over 1,500 exposures from a fixed angle, he also distills this visual information afterward in his studio, painstakingly composing selected frames into a single image.

A book that rewards repeated viewings, Day to Night presents 60 ultra-epic panoramas created between 2009 and 2018, shot everywhere from Africa's Serengeti to the Champs- lys es in Paris, from the Grand Canyon to Coney Island, from Trafalgar Square to Red Square. Each image is a labor of love as well as patience. Wilkes waited more than two years to gain permission to photograph Pope Francis celebrating Easter mass in the Vatican, ultimately producing a vivid tableau in which the pontiff appears 10 times. The book also highlights some of the extraordinary details that are an intrinsic part of the final image, works of art in their own right.

Each image takes us on a seamless trip from dawn to dark across the world's most iconic locations, and we discover the unique ebb and flow of man-made and natural landmarks like never before.
