About

Faces of Open Source is an on-going photographic documentation of the people behind the development and advancement of free and open source software. Participants are photographed by Peter Adams  at locations across the United States as well as in Adams’s studio in California.

These portraits are of people who dedicate their time and effort to create, or further the development of, the free and open software that enables much of the technology we have become dependent upon in our lives today. Without their efforts, things such as the Internet, email, GPS, and the proliferation of computing, would not be possible.

It is the goal of this project to bring to life the people behind the code by exhibiting the photographs as well as by ultimately making a book of the images available for purchase from this website.
