TED talk by Stephen Wilkes


Seronera National Park, Serengeti, TanzaniaO_NIGHT_SERENGETI_Master_17-fea-990x450We’ve exposed you to the art of photographer Stephen Wilkes before, but bring him up again now because he’s done a TED talk about his work and his process, which you can read about in a recent National Geographic article. Wilkes shoots thousands of images over the course of a day and stitches them together to create a collage representation of iconic places around the world – Yosemite, Santa Sophia, and a remarkable image of animals in Africa sharing a water hole. Take a listen, and take his astute observation into your life today: “The act of sharing has become more meaningful than the experience itself.”

Wilkes is represented locally by the Peter Fetterman Gallery, where you can visit to learn more about the cutting edge technique employed by Wilkes (as well as stumble upon other wonderful photography).
