Philosophers book reviewed in Philosophy Now

Hi Friends!

My second volume of Philosophers has just been reviewed in Philosophy Now, i'm including a link below. Hope you're all well.

Very best,


The review was written by Constantine Sandis of 'Philosophy Now' and can be seen in full here with a select few quotes below;

Jason Stanley

"Pyke’s collection proves just how wrong Nozick was to suppose that a picture of a person in a moment of time could not reveal a lifetime’s worth of traits, beliefs, emotions and aspirations."

Referring to text contributed by philosophers;

"It is revealing to compare the content of these with those in the 1993 book, as they collectively reveal a small yet steady change in the philosophical climate. "

"Philosophers could not have hoped for a better portrait artist than Steve Pyke. "

Help to fund the Moonbug exhibition at NASA

Dear friends,

Filmmaker Nichola Bruce and I have started a KickStarter project to fund Moonbug, a film to commemorate the men who first stepped foot on the moon. The project is focused on an upcoming
exhibition at NASA's Johnson Space Centre this November. A screening of Nichola's documentary Moonbug will coincide with my own portraits.

The film has a haunting soundtrack by leading electronic musician Matt Johnson of "The The"- and chronicles my odyssey to capture the pioneering astronauts in an array of outstanding profile portraits. We are hoping to also then do several screenings of the film in NYC and across the country. Please help us support the exhibition through this project. We thank you for all of your support.



You can view the video introduction below and head over to the Kickstarter page to find out more and see the available rewards for support.
