The Winter Garden Photograph project marks the 40th anniversary of Camera Lucida in 2020. It comprises two parts. The first part involves publishing a book of contemporary photographs and texts. The second part involves an exhibition of these works at the Houston Center for Photography. Some 200 photographers, critics, curators, and historians made or contributed images and texts that reflect on Roland Barthes' unseen winter garden photograph.
This lecture will discuss the winter garden project in context of concealed and/or 'written' photographs. It will include critical discussion about the variety of images within the project.
