I was searching for alternatives for the words: favourites, favs, best of, through the years or for the left over photographs, which could not be attached to one of my projects or to one of my (former) place(s) of residence (see: sense of belonging). And I was thinking about Roland Barthes` essay La chambre claire. Barthes considers photography as asymbolic, irreducible to the codes of language or culture, acting on the body as much as on the mind. The book develops the twin concepts of studium and punctum: studium denoting the cultural, linguistic, and political interpretation of a photograph, punctum denoting the wounding, personally touching detail which establishes a direct relationship with the object or person within it. The title „Wunde(r)punkte“ directly refers to the concept of punktum, cause „wunde Punkte“ could be translated as: „wound points, sore spot or Achilles` heel“ and „Wunderpunkte“ as „miracle points“.
