Philosopher-Photographers on Instagram (and Elsewhere)


Sometimes a little beauty is in order. 

I know about and follow a few philosophers who take gorgeous photographs and post them on Instagram or their own sites. I’ll share some of them with you, with a few samples from each.

I hope you’ll be able to clue us in to some more philosopher-photographers to follow, be it on Instagram or elsewhere.

If only we could all be as happy as that lemur looks, right?

I also park my occasional amateur photography on Instagram, here (@justin.weinberg).

Do you know of other philosopher-photographers with pictures on Instagram or somewhere else publicly accessible online? Are you one? If so, please let us know where to look.

UPDATE (8/4/19): People are really coming through in the comments with pointers to some great photography by philosophers. Thanks! Check them out!
