Pyke’s portraits of philosophers

Photographer Steve Pyke has been photographing philosophers for over twenty years.  In an essay that appeared yesterday in the New York Times Opinionator, he explains why he pursues the project and how he goes about it:  http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/10/31/philosophers-through-the-lens/

Some of his portraits upcoming in his next book together with the philosophers’ brief description of their work or of philosophy are also available through the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2010/11/01/opinion/20101101_Stone_Profile.html
