Bright, high in the sky
The absence of the dark night
Making all thing hot.
“Studium… a kind of general, enthusiastic commitment, of course, but without special acuity. It is by studium that I am interested in so many photographs, for it is culturally that I participate in the figures, the faces, the gestures, the settings, the actions” “The second element will break (or punctuate) the studium… this element which rises from the scene, shoots out of it like an arrow, and pierces me. A Latin word exists to designate this wound, this prick, this mark made by a pointed instrument: the word suits me all the better in that it also refers to the notion of punctuation, and because the photographs I am speaking of are in effect punctuated, sometimes event speckled with this sensitive points… I shall therefore call punctum; for punctum is also: sting, speck, cut, little hole – and also a cast of the dice. A photograph’s punctum is that accident which pricks me (but also bruises me, is poignant to me).”
