Why? A Requiem to Barthes
Despite having been tragically killed after being hit by a laundry van in 1980, Roland Barthes has an enduring effect on photography even today. This is a short tribute to the author, created for the International Student Film and Photo Competition between the Department of Media at Canterbury Christ Church University, Eotvos Lorand University and Jonkoping University. Through Camera Lucida, Barthes left his mark on photography in the form of two simple words which form two complex terms: Studium and Punctum.
