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.

Barthes' last work before his death in 1980 is a profound, personal and disturbing confrontation with the ecstacy of image.
