“Philosophers” by Steve Pyke

PhilComp350Steve Pyke went audacious. Up to January 2007, he photographed philosophers. He published two books. He called them simply “Philosophers”.

I couldn’t distinguish the metaphysicians from the existentialists, the historians from the deconstructivists. But their expressions, their grimness, their half-smiles, their lost-in-thoughts looks that Pyke geniously captured, represent the first visual definition of what being an intellectual means.
