Additional reading notes Lecture 9

In Roland Barthes ‘Photographic message’ he talks of how the structure of the photograph is not singular, but in direct correlation with the structure of text, be it captions or accompanying words. Both structures are separate from each other and only once both structures are fully understood i.e. the text and the image can the whole story be understood.Screen Shot 2017-05-16 at 21.12.30.png

Bathes talks of how other messages cease to also have a code, such as paintings and theatre. They do however have a supplementary message, as Barthes puts it the denoted and connoted message.Screen Shot 2017-05-16 at 21.17.40.png

In Barthes opinion all the arts have these two parts of a message with in them The denoted message is one of description, with the connoted part being that which is more difficult to interpret, the meaning of the artĀ itself to the viewer.Screen Shot 2017-05-16 at 21.23.58.pngScreen Shot 2017-05-16 at 21.24.25.png
