24 hours on Earth: in one image

TED | STEPHEN WILKES | COUNTDOWN

“Nature reveals itself to us in unique ways, if we stop and look at the world through a window of time,” says photographer Stephen Wilkes.

Using a special photographic technique that reveals how a scene changes from day to night in a single image, Wilkes exposes the Earth’s beautiful complexity and the impacts of climate change — from the disruption of flamingo migrations in Africa to the threat of melting ice — with unprecedented force.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.
