This post contains my own notes it is not a review or a comprehensive summary of the Book.

I use it to note what I feel I may use when writing about certain photo projects or things I want to note in the future. Rolande Barthes Extracts from Camera Lucida. By Now I have read Camer Lucida and we have touched on it any times while studying.
Liz Wells has supplied a quick summary which is interesting to read. One item I the photography reader liz wells note of was Barthes comments on a photo turning you into an object. The photograph automatically puts us in history but it also turns us into an object.
Barthes preferred the non professional candid photograph feeling it was more authentic as did Christian Boltanski see next Chapter.
He has created a false family album, he states he does not remember much of his own childhood or has chosen not the photography reader liz wells and recreated images that could have been his own photo album. I would like to tie this into my reading of Annette Kuhns writing who speaks of re creating her own family album.

The family in this case are her own however she chose as a child to represent her family as she thought they should be. We are conditioned in a way to take shots the mimic those taken in the past. Photography initially mimicked photography of the late 19th century and the photography reader liz wells we mimic earlier photography.
Look at images by Pep Ventosa of famous landmarks whereby many tourist images of famous landmarks are placed over each other.

If you look through many family albums from births, birthdays, marriages etc you will see that we pose the same. There are the classic shots that you are expected to take.
Perhaps this is where photography needs to move forward to no longer accept this to make family albums that show all aspects of life and from different perspectives. Judging by the millions of selfies on FB all looking the same I believe we are far away from this change.

We are being conditioned through imagery. Chapter 3 Walter Benjamin.
Original art works in the service of a ritual first the magical then the religious. With the advent of the first truly revolutionary means of reproduction, photography, simultaneously with the rise of socialism, art sensed the approaching crisis which has become evident a century the photography reader liz wells.
To sumarise at the end Benjamins sentiment is that once art became so easily reproducible it lost its ritualistic purpose and began to be based on a political purpose. Introduction to section 2 of book also touches on this.
He also argues that photography creates nothing of use in terms of basic social utility. Personal thoughts if we look at post war images that were published both stills and television to encourage women to return home to be the perfect housewife etc.
