Book Photosophy


The book PhotoSophy is a photographic album where Philosophy and Photography link to form one unity from which emerge a dialog, a tension between image and text. The book contains 21 photos by Pierre Poulain, accompanied by philosophical texts.

Behind every photo there is a Philosophical idea, a deep attraction to life. The text does not explain the image, neither the image illustrates the text. They are both part of the creation and together, without explaining one another, they create a whole. Life is always the One which is Whole.

Book Wisdom through the lens

Wisdom through the lens

A practical guide for photography as a mean for self transformation

More than an interest in photography, this book promotes philosophy, from behind the viewfinder of a camera. A staunch follower of philosophy in the applied sense, the author Pierre Poulain has taught philosophy and been a photographer for more than 25 years. To him they are not separate roads, but different expressions of the same search of wisdom, which expresses itself as beauty and aesthetic.

For the true philosopher learning about life does not happen only in the classroom, but more importantly life, with all its aspects, is the real school and teacher. Photography enables one to capture a moment of reality, and in it, the essence of truth.
