Stephen Wilkes has been widely recognized for his fine art and commercial photography. Wilkes has won numerous awards and honors, and continues to exhibit his work in both galleries and museums. In 1999 Wilkes completed a personal project photographing the south side of Ellis Island: the ruined landscape of the infectious disease and psychiatric hospital wings, where children and adults alike were detained before they could enter America.

Wilkes’ newest body of work is titled, Day to Night™. Wilkes photographs from a fixed camera angle continuously for up to 15 hours, throughout the “Day to Night”™. A select group of images are then digitally blended into one photograph, capturing the changing of time in a single frame. Wilkes shoots editorial for major publications as well, advertising campaigns for many of the country's foremost agencies and corporations. Wilkes is represented by Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York.
