Visitors to the Museum may view the original large-scale photograph in the Fairfield Museum’s Jacky Durrell Meeting Hall through June 3. Wilkes of Westport is known for his “Day to Night” works, in which he shoots breathtaking landscapes, portrayed from a fixed camera angle for up to 30 hours to capture fleeting moments over the course of a full day night. Several of his other world-renowned photographs are included in the exhibition.
