Then, as Barthes contemplates a photograph of his mother as a child, the book becomes an exposition of his own mind.

"I am moved by the sense of discovery in Camera Lucida, by the glimpse of a return to a lost world" * New Society *
"Profoundly shaped the way the medium is regarded" -- Geoff Dyer * Guardian *
