The Passing of Time Captured in a Single Photo

In a talk from the TED2016 conference, photographer Stephen Wilkes explains how he uses thousands of photographs taken of a location over many hours to capture the passing of time in a single image for his Day to Night series.

Photographer Stephen Wilkes crafts stunning compositions of landscapes as they transition from day to night, exploring the space-time continuum within a two-dimensional still photograph. Journey with him to iconic locations like the Tournelle Bridge in Paris, El Capitan in Yosemite National Park and a life-giving watering hole in heart of the Serengeti in this tour of his art and process.
