Steve Pyke | Philosophers Vol I | Intro
Portrait photographers have long seemed to me a foolhardy breed, hoping to capture not just the appearance but the spirit of their subject in a fraction of a second on a extremely small and flat surface. The photographs in this book prove that this is not only possible but that the results can be both profound and moving. These photographs provide the most vivid introduction possible to some of the greatest minds of our age.
