These are some of the faces in the ‘Unix’ section of the site / book.
The most vociferous debate may be over who’s been left out.

> Portraits of Revolutionaries
> Photographer Peter Adams started the Faces of Open Source project in 2014 at his studio in Silicon Valley. 
> Since then, he has photographed dozens of notable and unsung heroes of the open source revolution. 
> The result has been a collection of engaging, yet intimate, black and white portraits that will hopefully move viewers to discover more.
