Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography


Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography


Publisher Marketing:  A graceful, contemplative volume, "Camera Lucida" was first published in 1979. Commenting on artists such as Avedon, Clifford, Mapplethorpe and Nadar, Roland Barthes presents photography as being outside the codes of language or culture, acting on the body as much as on the mind, and rendering death and loss more acutely than any other medium. This groundbreaking approach established "Camera Lucida" as one of the most important books of theory on the subject, along with Susan Sontag's "On Photography."
