This Place Called Notre DameThis Place Called Notre Dame

The University of Notre Dame Press and the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore are proud to cosponsor a book launch for THIS PLACE CALLED NOTRE DAME with University photographer Matt Cashore and Notre Dame Magazine editor Kerry Temple. The event is on Thursday, September 6, 2018, 4PM – 5:30PM, at the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore, Second Floor. Admission is free and open to the public.

Cashore (ND '94) has been photographing the university for over twenty years, and was named the 2016 University Photographer of the Year by the University Photographers Association of America. Kerry Temple (ND '74) has been writing about the university for forty years and serves as the editor of Notre Dame Magazine. Cashore and Temple have combined their talents in a magnificent new coffee-table book, This Place Called Notre Dame.

Cashore’s photographs beautifully document campus life, capturing the quads, the architecture, the academics, football festivities, the faith life, and student fun of contemporary Notre Dame. Now these images have been collected into one volume conveying the beauty, character, and spirit of the university. Accompanying Cashore’s photographs is text by Kerry Temple, an astute university observer and writer whose articles and essays have chronicled the nature, traditions, and growth of Notre Dame over the past four decades. Current and prospective students, alumni, faculty, staff, and all who have experienced and love the university, as well as those who have never been able to visit in person, will treasure this insider’s view of one of the most beautiful and celebrated campuses in the world, this place called Notre Dame.

"Matt Cashore is a master of the visual art of photography. In this wonderful new book, he displays once again his love for Notre Dame by capturing the beauty of the place, the combination of natural preservation and human construction. We see those places, angles of sight, and events that spark our imagination and recall moments in each of our personal histories." —Rev. Edward A. Malloy, C.S.C., president emeritus, University of Notre Dame

“If you’ve been there, no explanation is necessary. If you haven’t, none is adequate.” —Lou Holtz, head football coach, University of Notre Dame, 1986-1996
