    24 Hours Inside Walmart with Stephen Wilkes

    Stephen Wilkes took a photo every 10 seconds of the day for a time-lapse video inside Walmart for Fortune magazine. All in all, 8,640 frames were taken (1,800 that are actually used) and the entire 24 hours is compressed into two minutes. The shoot took place on April 6-7, 2010 in New Brunswick, New Jersey from 9:14pm to 9:14pm. Says Photo Editor Lauren Winfield, "The inspiration was to show that Walmart never sleeps... open 24 hours with no real daylight, you have no sense of what time of day it is. We wanted to see what the traffic flow of people coming in and out of the store looks like as a day in the life."

    Stephen Wilkes' images appear in the May 3rd issue of Fortune.
