Barthes’ Connotation Procedures in Photography.
It is, according to Barthes, “possible to separate out various connotation procedures”. I will use Barthes’ “headlines” from his article, but bring in my own elaboration and examples. And pictures.
Barthes works with 6 procedures in his scheme. I will treat each one separately in forthcoming posts.
Stay tuned for a short separate treatment of each of Barthes’ connotation procedures. For a shortcut to some of his famous articles, please see the book referred to in Library Link below.
When I post on the individual procedures, I will link the separate posts from this introductory post. So, eventually you will be able to reach all posts from this post. Look for the links above, and you will notice that the post on 3. Objects is already there.
Good luck with it.
