Roland Barthes


There is a great resource here which makes many of Barthes' texts available to download. Any of you writing about the relationship between drawing and photography should be reading his work. 
My own view is that all artists are by default 'historical materialists', encoded within everything we make is a material narrative that at first we don't see, but it will be opened out by future audiences as they unpick our moral decadence and become amazed at our thoughtlessness. 
Happy Holidays.
