It seems that the sun was just shining outside the window. You take your eyes off the monitor - the Egyptian darkness. The day that had so much to do was over and the lanterns came on. Does it sound familiar? Photos of New York, taken by Stephen Wilkes, make it possible not only to compare the same streets at different times of the day, but also to feel how quickly time flies: you will not have time to look back, and the day has already turned into night.
New York is a city that never sleeps, and different authors talk about it differently. However, the photographs of New York in the night lights have already become familiar, and new artistic solutions are needed. A new take on urban photography is offered by Stephen Wilkes, a 20-year-old photographer who will soon be opening an exhibition in and around New York.
Who and tell about a wonderful city if not a native of New York? Although Stephen Wilkes went to study at the University of Syracuse in his youth, traveled a lot, lived in China, and now his photo studio is located in Connecticut, the talented photographer remembers the city of his childhood very well.
Stephen Wilkes has all the hallmarks of excellence and success: 5 major exhibitions in the last 5 years, collaboration with major magazines (such as Time, Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine), awards from various illustrated publications. The talented photographer's clients include the world famous companies IBM, American Express, Nike and Rolex.
Stephen Wilkes' creative project "Day to Night" is a photograph of New York in which light and darkness are bizarrely combined. Night - to the left, day - to the right? Not always. Sometimes you need to look closely at the pictures in order to understand where the desired "light divide" is.
For each view of New York, an experienced photographer spent about 10 hours and hundreds of frames (they were all taken from one point). Then Stephen Wilkes cut the city photographs into dozens of pieces (usually from 30 to 50), and then put the puzzle together again, but in such a way that he would argue between day and night within the same image. The result of many hours of work is really impressive.

How teenagers and rock 'n' roll made vaccination fashionable: King Elvis saves the world from an epidemic
The polio virus has kept millions of parents at bay for years. In America, by 1955, tens of thousands of children were infected, many were disabled. Hope came with the discovery of a vaccine against this terrible disease. But those who wanted to be vaccinated were negligible. In search of a solution to this problem, the government attracted the most popular person in the United States at that time - Elvis Presley. The king of rock and roll was able to dramatically change the opinion of all Americans (and not only) about vaccination. How did the musician manage to
Most of the world has been calculating time for four centuries using a calendar called the Gregorian. The year of this calendar is divided into 12 months and lasts 365 days. One additional day is added every four years. Such a year is called a leap year. This is necessary in order to remove the difference between the movement of the sun and the calendar. This concept was introduced in the late 16th century by Pope Gregory XIII as a reform of the Julian calendar. The Gregorian calendar is generally accepted because
Sir Ernest Shackleton's missing ship, the Endurance, has become a legend. One of the most famous ships in the world sank in the Weddell Sea in Antarctica.
