Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography
This personal, wide-ranging, and contemplative volume--and the last book Barthes published--finds the author applying his influential perceptiveness and associative insight to the subject of photography. To this end, several black-and-white photos (by the likes of Avedon, Clifford, Hine, Mapplethorpe, Nadar, Van Der Zee, and so forth) are reprinted throughout the text.

It's a convoluted, superfluous mess. My professor even admitted it should be called "What Turns Me On" by Roland Barthes for its subjective indulgence and nutty pluralism. Read in less than a day. Read full review
