Notre Dame by Eugene Atget (1925)

The photograph titled “Notre Dame” was taken by the artist Eugene Atget in the year 1925. It captures Notre Dame Cathedral, a historic Catholic cathedral in Paris, seen from across what appears to be the Seine River. The composition of the photograph is framed by bare tree branches in the foreground, which creates a natural contrast to the architectural grandeur of the cathedral in the background. The cathedral itself is partially obscured by these branches, giving the image a sense of depth and perspective. The atmosphere of the photograph is somewhat moody and reflective, conveyed through the monochromatic color palette and the serene, possibly overcast, winter day it depicts. The river appears calm, mirroring the solemnity of the cathedral and the barren trees, contributing to the overall contemplative mood of the scene.
