Biography

Working as a photojournalist and artist, Stephen Wilkes is well known for his photographs of abandoned and deteriorating buildings, including a series of the dilapidated hospital wings of Ellis Island, a project that resulted in a $6-million grant to restore the island. More recently, he created the sweeping panoramas of his series “Day to Night”, which dramatically shift from dawn to midnight in a single image; Wilkes created this effect by taking up to 1,500 photographs during the course of one day, eventually narrowing them down to 50 and combining them digitally. His work has been featured in leading magazines and newspapers including Vanity Fair, Time, Life Magazine, and The New York Times Magazine.
