Stephen Wilkes, The Power of the Still Image

Stephen Wilkes has been widely recognized or over 20 years for his fine art and commercial photography. His photos are published in top magazines, his exhibitions grand and frequent, and his passion for creating beautiful images with lasting power is evident when you view his work.

In the video above, please join us as we review his latest projects. At Ellis Island we see Stephen's delicate study of light and color. In Bethlehem, PA we can see what and how he chose to portray the disappearing steel mills, a pivotal location in America's history. And most recently, his exciting project Day to Night, a fine art exploration of compressing up to 15 hours of time into a single frame.

Tying all of this together is Stephen's summation of why he chooses X-Rite's color management solutions in both his commercial and fine art projects. We hope you enjoy this inside look at a modern master's process.
