Visual place literacy through photography and film has been a major area of concentration for Wilkie’s work over the years—especially as they relate to “Sense of Place” and “Spirit of Place.” The geography of light and how the quality of light varies from place to place in the world—in different season, at different elevations, and at different latitudes globally is a major theme of his work, along with documenting individuals, families and communities in time and place within their cultural landscapes.
He has published several thousand photographs in academic books, journals, text books, trade books (Time-Life, etc.), encyclopedias, magazines and newspapers, including such places as University Presses (Yale, Washington, Massachusetts) and newspapers-- New York Times, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, Christian Science Monitor, Philadelphia Enquirer, Paris-Match, and many others.
