Camera Lucida - Reflections on Photography
Examining the themes of presence and absence, the relationship between photography and theatre, history and death, these 'reflections on photography' begin as an investigation into the nature of photographs. Then, as Barthes contemplates a photograph of his mother as a child, the book becomes an exposition of his own mind. Roland Barthe's final book, Reflections on Photography is a less a critical essay than a suite of valedictory meditations.Author: Roland Barthes
