Capturing 24 hours in just one picture | Mesmerising photographs of cities by Stephen Wilkes

Photographer Stephen Wilkes takes 1,500 photos to create just one composite image and spends up to 15 hours a day shooting the sunrise and sunset. See below images from day to night in some of the worlds most iconic cities, including the Shanghai skyline & New Yorks Central Park.

The collection entitled Day to Night features 15 images including works from Times Square, The Western Wall and The Capitol. To create the images, Stephen, 55, from Connecticut, U.S.A., shoots across the entire landscape from sunrise to sunset. He then returns to his studio to blend around 50 of the best photographs to create one seamless image. Each piece takes around one month to edit.
