Stephen Wilkes

Please join us for a special artist talk on July 7th from 6-7pm at the Nantucket Atheneum where internationally renowned photographer Stephen Wilkes will discuss his incredible career with a special focus on his brand new image of Nantucket from his “Day to Night" series, followed by a Q&A.

Best known for his ongoing and most defining series "Day to Night" which he began in 2009, Wilkes has received countless honors and awards for his epic landscapes and cityscapes that employ a fixed camera angle for up to 30 hours to capture the passage of light over the course of a full day. Taking thousands of individual photographs from an elevated vantage point, Wilkes then selects his favorite moments and carefully weaves them together over several months to produce one composite image.

Wilkes' brand new photograph of Nantucket will make its official debut at our gallery at 30A Main Street on July 6th as part of our special summer exhibition, "Day to Night: From Africa to Nantucket."
