Add to Calendar Europe/Paris Camera Lucida: Vintage Design Edition

Examining themes of presence and absence, these reflections on photography begin as an investigation into the nature of photographs – their content, their pull on the viewer, their intimacy. Then, as Barthes contemplates a photograph of his mother as a child, the book becomes an exposition of his own mind. He was grieving for his mother at the time of writing. Strikingly personal, yet one of the most important early academic works on photography, ‘Camera Lucida’ remains essential reading for anyone interested in the power of images.
