Unexpected reading wishlist

Two books I want, incase somebody wants to get them for me:

vintage wise Barthes

when we do not know why it has been taken

what motive and interest is there in photographing a lamp and a tree

or a man from a distance

or another lamp hanging from the ceiling;

then the photograph becomes 'surprising'.
said Roland B.

1923, Dziga Vertov

'I am an eye. A mechanical eye. I, the machine, show you a world the way only I can see it..
I free myself for today and forever from human immobility. I’m in constant movement.
I approach and pull away from objects. I creep under them. I move alongside a running horse’s mouth.
I fall and rise with the falling and rising bodies. This is I, the machine, maneuvering in the chaotic movements, recording one movement after another in the most complex combinations. Freed from the boundaries of time and space,
I co-ordinate any and all points of the universe, wherever I want them to be.
My way leads towards the creation of a fresh perception of the world.
Thus I explain in a new way the world unknown to you.' 1923, Dziga Vertov
