Although Roland Barthes often used photographic materials in his structuralist analyses of the bourgeois myths in mass culture and advertising, it was not until his last years that he published a collection of essays entirely devoted to photography. In Camera Lucida , the French philosopher moves away from the semiotics of binary oppositions and effectively envisages photography as a signifier without a signified.

However, in the first part of the work Barthes devises a language that allows him to do so, introducing the concepts of the operator , the spectator and the spectrum. Although the nature of punctum is elusive, most often it hides in some detail that catches the eye of the spectator. The second part of the book is more personal. Looking through her photographs, he discovered what he would later call punctum in a photo of her as child in a winter garden.

Barthes explored diverse cultural spheres as semiotic systems and studied the relationship between language and authority. Subscribe to our mailing list and get the latest news from Garage. Roland Barthes. Mailing List Subscribe to our mailing list and get the latest news from Garage.

Roland Barthes. Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography

To address the apparently uncoded level of photographs, which troubles the semiological approach Barthes himself adopted in the early s, Camera Lucida advances a theory of photographic meaning that makes a distinction between the studium and the punctum and highlights the punctum as photography-specific. The studium indicates historical, social or cultural meanings extracted via semiotic analysis. For example, the photograph taken by Koen Wessing in p. The punctum points to those features of a photograph that seem to produce or convey a meaning without invoking any recognizable symbolic system.

Rereading: Camera Lucida by Roland Barthes

Camera Lucida French : La chambre claire is a short book published in by the French literary theorist and philosopher Roland Barthes. It is simultaneously an inquiry into the nature and essence of photography and a eulogy to Barthes' late mother. The book investigates the effects of photography on the spectator as distinct from the photographer, and also from the object photographed, which Barthes calls the "spectrum". In a deeply personal discussion of the lasting emotional effect of certain photographs, Barthes considers photography as asymbolic, irreducible to the codes of language or culture, acting on the body as much as on the mind. The book develops the twin concepts of studium and punctum : studium denoting the cultural, linguistic, and political interpretation of a photograph, punctum denoting the wounding, personally touching detail which establishes a direct relationship with the object or person within it.
