Thinking of Photographs in the Work of Roland Barthes
KAUTZKÁ, Tereza
This bachelor thesis deals with an aesthetic of photography from the point of view of Roland Barthes. The main work I am going to deal with in this thesis is the last study called Camera Lucida - Reflections of photography by Roland Barthes from 1980. In this book, he deviates from his typical semiological approach to the benefit of wider and more personal gripped concept of photography on the border with phenomenology, semiology, psychoanalysis and personal biography. In this thesis, I am also going to work with Barthes' previous texts in which he was interested in photography. These texts include the Photographic Message (1961), The Rhetoric of the Image (1964) and The Third Meaning (1970). I am going to focus on the characteristic of photography like a photography itself, on its ontology and why the photography is that specific and what makes it that specific from the other kind of Art. Mainly I will focus on two key concepts from the Camera Lucida, the concepts of studium and punctum and how this punctum is connected to time and death.
