Examining the themes of presence and absence, the relationship between photography and theatre, history and death, these 'reflections on photography' begin as an investigation into the nature of photographs. Then, as Barthes contemplates a photograph of his mother as a child, the book becomes an exposition of his own mind.

"Of all his works it is the most accessible in language and the most revealing about the author. And effortlessly, as if in passing, his reflections on photography raise questions and doubts which will permanently affect the vision of the reader" ( Guardian)
"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)
‘Roland Barthes' final book - less a critical essay than a suite of valedictory meditations - is his most beautiful, and most painful’ Observer
