Stephen Wilkes: Day to Night will open at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery on September 14. This is the second exhibition of photographs by Stephen Wilkes at the Gallery, and can best be described as an ongoing global photographic project “that visualizes an entire day in one image.” By photographing from a fixed perspective, from daybreak through nightfall, and capturing thousand of moments in iconic locations in ten countries, Wilkes uses time as a guide and seamlessly composites the best moments into the final composition.

One of the most significant of Wilkes’ projects stemmed from a one-day assignment on Ellis Island in 1998, which led to a five-year photographic study of the Island’s history, Ellis Island: Ghosts of Freedom. The stunning photographs of infectious disease and psychiatric hospital wings where the children and adults were detained before they could enter America, helped to secure millions of dollars in funding toward the restoration of the south side of the Island.
