About Camera Lucida

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

Camera Lucida (in French, La Chambre claire) published in 1980 by Roland Barthes. It is simultaneously an inquiry into the nature and essence of photography and a eulogy to Barthes\'s late mother. The book investigates the effects of photography on the spectator.

Written after the death of his mother, Camera Lucida is as much a reflection on death as it is on photography. Barthes died unexpectedly in an automobile accident soon after the publication of Camera Lucida.

About Camera Lucida

The book develops the twin concepts of studium and punctum:

studium (知面) denoting the cultural, linguistic, and political interpretation of a photograph

punctum (刺點) denoting the wounding, personally touching detail which establishes a direct relationship with the object or person within it

photography never lies photography affirms that the object on the print does exist

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

“Death is the eidos of that photograph.”

The photographic experience is always

an experience of the past; Every photographic

About Camera Lucida

“History is hysterical: it is constituted only if we

consider it, only if we look at it—and in order to

look at it, we must be excluded from it.”

“The tension between memory and history is

an active process that moves both ways: from

memory to history as well as from history to

memory.” (Sturken)
