Excerpt from our interview with the artist:⠀

"So this was shot on July 16, one of these perfect summer days and you can see I specifically wanted day to be on the beach side and lo and behold with my luck there was a regatta race going on so that's why all these white sailboats are out here on the water. And as time changes, it actually changes across the boardwalk. For me, I never even ate lunch, I think I actually ate lunch and was photographing at the same time, because I could not take my eyes off of the people and what was going on below me. I'm 50-feet in the air here for 16 hours photographing everything that I can see and the beautiful thing about what I do is I get up in the air at 50-feet nobody looks up so I'm essentially invisible. So nobody is really conscious that they're being photographed and as a result, I get to see all these incredible moments. There are people here with "Free Hugs" signs. There's a girl down here who looks like she's something out of the 1920s with an outfit on. My favorite guy is here; he obviously had quite a bit of sun and was wearing his wife beater t-shirt and he took it off and so he's got the outline of the actual t-shirt still on his body. So there's all kinds of stuff going on here. And, of course, as time changes, the amusement park comes on and Deno's Wonderwheel which is such an iconic landmark of Coney Island. And, of course, recently Hurricane Sandy destroyed a lot of this area and they've rebuilt it but many of these things don't exist quite the same way they do in this photograph so it's actually become somewhat historical."⠀

Curious fact: Every ribbon eel gets born male. As soon as the adult ribbon eel reaches full size (~ 1 metre), it begins to turn into a female, and turns yellow. It will then mate, lay eggs, and die within about a month. Due to this short lifespan, female ribbon eels are a relatively rare sight.

There are no do-overs. He is at the complete mercy of the elements, riding out a thunderstorm in a crane full of electrical equipment or hoping that an advancing weather front won’t obscure a sunset on what was an otherwise perfect day. “I go out with real positive energy,” he says. “And I don’t really give it up. Because I just never know. And sometimes when it can be the most dire situation in terms of the way the weather looks, it can bring you the most spectacular things.”⠀

And what gets him through these extreme tests of mental and physical endurance? “I am a collector,” he says. “When you are a collector and you are missing that one piece of that collection, you will go through unbelievable lengths. I will wait. I will do whatever it takes. I love collecting moments of magic. That’s what I do.”⠀

Stephen Wilkes, Jay Maisel and Kathryn Keane onstage at Nat Geo last night for a discussion after a showing of Stephen’s movie about Jay and the bank, “Jay Myself”. What a lovely tribute to Jay and their forty years of friendship. I consider myself a very lucky man to know Jay, to enjoy his friendship and to have experienced visiting and seeing his amazing room upon room of collections within 190 Bowery, NYC. #jaymaisel #jaymyself @jaymaisel @stephenwilkes @natgeo #stephenwilkes #natgeostorysummit #kathrynkeane #nationalgeographic @insidenatgeo #thephotosociety @thephotosociety

Ewe couldn't make it up! 🐰🐑💕This adorable pet rabbit called Peter has an unlikely group of pals - a flock of sheep. Each morning, Peter hops from the farmhouse where he lives in Wales to spend his day playing with a sheep and her triplets. Then with all the whimsy of a Beatrix Potter tale, when he's tired from all the fun and frolics Peter makes his way home for the night. #rabbits #petsofinstagram @bbcwalesnews #StephenWilkes #Kenya #NationalPark #LakeBogoria #ocean

Excerpt from our interview with the artist:⠀

"So this is an image I did from the Kumbh Mela Festiva in Haridwar, India. It's one of these extraordinary religious festivals that happens in India. In this picture, to get this view, I had to be in a police tower about 40-feet above everybody. And it was 18 hours of photographing, just incredible thing to witness. So in the morning, this is time starts on the left side here, this is on the x-axis and time, actually, this is on the z-axis, so morning is on the bottom, time travels this way. So it goes from day into night. And what happens is that people come in and it's a part of the religious belief is that the River Ganges is a god and you swim into the river. So the prayer is literally staying in the water all day long and praying all day long. As you look closely here, there are all these fantastic moments that were happening as I kept photographing. But I have to say my favorite moment is this one gentleman in this picture because I think in a unique way he is only so big in the photograph, yet it feels to me like he draws all the energy into this single moment. He's what they describe as called "letting himself go to god" and that's the moment that's happening right here. And I remember when I took the picture, I knew instantly that that moment was going to be in this photograph. ⠀

Photographer @stephenwilkes took a photo once every 10 seconds to create a time-lapse video inside Walmart, compressing 24 hours into 2 minutes. Two photos from this project accompany an article in the Jan-Feb issue of @harvard_business_review about brick-and-mortar retailers cutting staff and training to compete with online retailers.

Video @filipe_deandrade // Hummingbirds protect their food sources with such vigor because they never know when it will run out. They need to consume almost their body weight in calories each day, so you can understand their competitive drive. This feeding frenzy benefits the world around them however. Each time they hit a flower, they collect pollen on their head and beak, then transfer that to other flowers. This endless cycle of pollination keeps them busy, the flowers healthy and bird enthusiasts mesmerized. Follow @filipe_deandrade and @brianmoghari for more wildlife adventures.

"If you look closely, there is a real story going on in this photograph. Time changes on what I call the "x-axis" so from the bottom of the picture going up is how time changes. In the foreground is the early morning and you can see that this is a marabou stork you'll notice that they are on either side of the photograph. And what ends up happening is that as time changes, you'll see that the birds are at one point very clustered together, they are sensing that maybe the marabou stork is gonna attack them. And then what happens is that during the day you'll notice the color of light change in the birds. They start getting relaxed and they don't feel as threatened anymore. And then suddenly, in the late afternoon light, all these marabou storks that are in the rear of this picture and the front ones have a full-on attack so every single bird you see on the ground here, this is one moment when they all flew and took off because they were being attacked. And it was one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. Literally, a hundred thousand birds flying at once."⠀⁣

| A group of zebras pauses to drink from a pond during a drought in the Serengeti. Because air moves at different speeds over the black-and-white on a Zebra’s coat, cooling currents are created, allowing them to withstand the high temperatures of the African plains.

“Using time as a guide, I seamlessly blend those best moments into one single photograph, visualizing our conscious journey with time. I can take you to Paris for a view from the Tournelle Bridge. And I can show you the early morning rowers along the River Seine. And simultaneously, I can show you Notre Dame aglow at night. And in between, I can show you the romance of the City of Light.⠀⁣
⠀⁣
I am essentially a street photographer from 50 feet in the air, and every single thing you see in this photograph actually happened on this day.”⠀⁣
