Stephen Wilkes, A Witness to Change
“Day to Night” is an ongoing global photographic project that visualizes an entire day in one image. Stephen Wilkes here photographs from a fixed perspective from dawn until night, capturing myriad moments in extraordinary locations around the world. While the earth rotates on its axis, Wilkes' camera absorbs the changes in light and color, exploring the space-time continuum within astonishing two-dimensional still photographs.

One example was a picture showing two pairs of legs outside a café, one wearing ragged trousers and barefoot, the other sporting crisp blue jeans, a leather machete sheath and fine laced boots - a telling reminder of inequality before the revolution.
