really liked it
Recommended for: photographers

This is a really thoughtful book on photography. Barthes is really poetic with the way that he explains his connection to photographs, especially when he speaks about his mother. Just don't take it too close to heart. Barthes is not a photographer, and if you take everything he says seriously, you won't want to be one either.
