This week on the show I turn to the archives for another "Best Of" featuring renowned fine art photographer, documentarian, and true student of time and light, Stephen Wilkes. Many of you might know Stephen from his beautifully produced series "Day to Night" which he is still traveling the world working on now and has broken the boundaries of how much time you can capture in a single photograph. That being said, Stephen has had a very storied career that dates back to his early teens and spans an impressive body of work and a list of clients that include some of the most respected curators of photography there are. As you look through some of his earlier street photography, documentary work, and fine art photographs, you can really understand how it all culminates into the current experiment and study of time, light, place, and human existence that "Day to Night" is. At age 12 Stephen first started taking pictures, and it wasn't long before he was diving head first into the art form and the business of photography. But it was a trip to the Met that would really change his life, and the paintings there would become some of his greatest influences. He would go on to study photography in college and work with some amazing mentors like Jay Maisel, and slowly find his own voice in his work. During our conversation we get the chance to talk about what he has learned from his constant observation of time, and our relationship to it as we get older, what keeps him inspired to keep creating, the passion you need for the work you do, and the advice he gives to others. But mostly, we talk about humanity, and what he has learned from years of watching.
