Matt Cashore, a 1994 graduate of Notre Dame, 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 is a 1974 Notre Dame graduate who 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. The result of this collaboration is a volume that speaks of Notre Dame with insight, artistry, and affection that will be treasured and enjoyed by students, alumni, faculty, staff, and all who have experienced and love the university.
Matt Cashore is senior university photographer at the University of Notre Dame. His photographs have been published in The Chapels of Notre Dame and Notre Dame’s Happy Returns, both published by the University of Notre Dame Press.
Kerry Temple is the editor of Notre Dame Magazine and the author of Celebrating 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
"Matt Cashore and Kerry Temple bring to This Place Called Notre Dame a depth of knowledge about the university shared by few people. Through the striking photography and engaging prose, we see 'old Notre Dame' in new and illuminating ways. In their pictures and words, Notre Dame comes alive as it is today—and even echoes awaken." —Robert Schmuhl, author of Fifty Years with Father Hesburgh
“When I'm distant from campus, when I'm missing Our Lady, when I'm craving a dose of the dome, I turn to the photos of Matt Cashore and the words of Kerry Temple. Now, thankfully, I have a book that pairs them, soulfully and insightfully, no farther away than my coffee table. This is a necessary book for anyone lucky enough to find a home at Notre Dame. " —Beth Ann Fennelly, '93, Poet Laureate of Mississippi
“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
"'I hope if you're a visitor to Notre Dame that it really helps capture the place in all the seasons and all the ways that maybe you didn't have a chance to see in a weekend here,' Cashore said. 'And if you are an alum, I hope it brings back whatever special memories you might have of a dorm or a place or an event. I hope it reconnects you with Notre Dame." —WNDU.com

“Now Notre Dame Press has collected Cashore’s images into one volume conveying the beauty, character and spirit of the University, accompanied by text from 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.” —NDWorks
