Description:

This paper presents a comparative analysis of two images from Roland Barthes' Camera Lucida - Andre Kertesz' "The Violinist's Tune" (1921) and Nicephore Niepce's "The Dinner Table" (c.1823) - in the context of both Barthes' readings of the images as well as Victor Burgin's distinct ideological analysis of the same images.
