Photographer Stephen Wilkes is one of America's most iconic photographers, widely recognized for his fine art, editorial 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 of humanity as light passes in front of his lens over the course of a full day. A select group of these images are then seamlessly blended into one photograph, capturing the changing of time within a single frame.
Stonehenge is one of the best-known ancient wonders of the world, and one of England's most iconic prehistoric monuments. "I photographed this Day to Night, just a few weeks after the summer solstice. The inner ring of Stonehenge has been closed to the public since 1978 and opens only a few times a year, hosting a pagan wedding ceremony called 'handfasting'. As luck would happen, I was blessed to capture a wedding ceremony on the very day I made this photograph."
