Existentialism

Once I founded the photo group EXISTENTIALISM – visit http://www.flickr.com/groups/existentialism/ (more than 1.300 members in the meantime). But though I’ve read Kierkegaard and Kafka, Sartre and Camus, Heidegger and Nietzsche: I am still silly enough to believe, animals could also realize that stylish EXISTENTIALISM-feeling … – tell me, if you don’t think so …

frizz-comment: he seems to be something like a CHURCHILL character between all those common birds … (by the way I also read Konrad Lorenz, a scientist, trying to understand the mind of animals…) read more in the discussion thread of my group at http://www.flickr.com/groups/existentialism/discuss/72157624265343247/

    • yes Jackie, BEN is a great photographer; we’ve been on the same place, the mountain Jenner, Bavaria, but I only took a photo introducing a birds’ gang – but the lonesome “EXISTENTIALISM” bird captured by BEN Visbeek gives us the important feeling WE CAN BE OURSELVES – we must not be the slave of any group …

  6. Lots to contemplate as I head out to start this day. The bird is thinking deeply- and has great presence. Your list of references will have to be explored at another time but are always better than a college course.

  8. I think they do: I think we have to experience recomecting with our nature to be enlighten enough to pay attention to the harmony within everything.

  9. Several crows pulled apart my tulip flowers this spring. There is a reason a group of them is called a ‘murder’…

  17. this is a beautiful picture… and I believe it is apt to the subject. It radiates the sort of presence that I would choose to illustrate existentialism. But I wonder… with all due respect for your work as a collector, and administrator of your fine group. whether it wouldn’t be more appropriate for you to ‘meet the challenge’, so to speak, with work of your own. I understand that you have published a book, and I have seen some of your own fine photos that you have captured. When I thought of the letter ‘E’, I was hoping to see some of your own work regarding existentialism.

    • Shalom Shimon,
      I wrote about Kierkegaard and Nietzsche, Jaspers and Buber – you can find the articles in my book
      fragments and feedbacks, June-2013 US $12.10
      – but it is very difficult to get attention with such stuff in a blog. So I decided to have my focus on interaction (interaction, an idea of Martin Buber!) – and to feature other photographer’s findings, thoughts, comments …
      P.S.:

      • my actual reflection on Existentialism: main part of this philosophy is to focus on courage (and not to get overwhelmed by ANGST). Maybe it is a question of courage for Israel, to follow some wishes of the people of upcoming Palestina: to give them West Jordan Land and parts of Jerusalem demands a lot of courage and trust. I’ve heard about some Israelis who try to respect Palestina: those are good existentialists in my eyes … – what do you think about the chance of those new started negotiations?
