The Winter Garden Photograph project will mark the 40th anniversary of 'Camera Lucida' by Roland Barthes. It will include a book and an exhibition of photographic prints in 2020. Discussions with publishers and venues are underway.

More than 200 artists, writers, critics, curators, editors, and educators have been invited to contribute a photographic reflection on Barthes' unpublished snapshot of his mother, Henriette, referred to in the book.


Copyright for all work contributed to the project remains with the contributor. All contributors will receive a copy of the book.

There is also potential for the show to go into a public collection following the exhibition.  

The Winter Garden Photograph project is coordinated by the artist Odette England.
