1) Studium: "meanings that are nameable," "given cultural meanings that we understand at once"

2) Punctum: "a personal memory based not on the public archive but a private repertoire," "stings the viewer...some detail (some accident in the photograph)"; "occurs when there is a match between a signifier in the scene (in the photograph), and a scene in the memory"

-- Roland Barthes

Nathan Lewis, Untitled (Deer), 2009
