Cultural Studies 1:  Cultural Studies 1 Lecture 6 Barthes : Decoding the image The photographic image:  The photographic image The photograph is simulacrum of reality It is a denotation in reduction, a tiny analogue of the real We do not typically look for coding or encoding in examining a photograph It appears as a message without a code ‘The camera doesn’t lie’ Barthes argues that this is not the case that images, like signs, both connote and denote The ‘documentary’ photograph:  The ‘documentary’ photograph A message which totally ‘exhausts its mode of existence’ It pretends purely denotative, documentary objectivity It is typically ‘read’ in the way it is intended as in some sense neutral But it has been worked on, chosen, composed and subjected to professional or ideological norms The photographic paradox:  The photographic paradox Co-existence of 2 messages: One without a code The photograph as analogue of the real One with a code The photograph as an encoded statement with a connoted message, a second meaning Connotation & Denotation:  Connotation & Denotation TITLE:  Buffalo, New York.
