I have always been captivated by history, and Venice is one of my favourite cities because it truly remains timeless. This photograph was created during the Regata Storica, an event that has taken place in Venice every year since 1841. The boats and costumes seen in this photograph are exactly the same as they were back then. - Stephen Wilkes
Stephen Wilkes is one of America's most iconic photographers, widely recognized for his fine art, editoral and commercial work. Day to Night, Wilkes's most defining project, began in 2009. These epic cityscapes and landscapes portrayed from a fixed camera angle for up to 30 hours capture fleeting moments as light passes in front of his lens over the course of a full day. The images are then painstakingly and seamlessly blended together, capturing the passage of time within a single frame.
