NYC Goes From Day to Night in One Frame
Photographer Stephen Wilkes spent a minimum of ten hours taking hundreds of shots to create each one of his Day to Night. Weaving and blending thirty to fifty parts, the photo-collagist extraordinaire created seamless, surrealist scenes of New York City life. The Flatiron Building splits the urban landscape from AM to PM, sunlit yellow cabs turning into a river of neon streaks around its sharp corner. Clusters of wintry Central Park are submerged into the dark. Times Square teems more densely in the shadowy patches of night. This “fluid narrative” captures two sides of each landmark and the never-ending current of energy cycling throughout.
