Notre-Dame After the Fire

For over eight centuries, she has drawn the gaze of Parisians and marked their hours and rites with her bells. On April 15, 2019, fire devastated the iconic Notre-Dame cathedral of Paris.

After her bells fell silent and her charred structure was fenced off from the public, I gained rare privileged access to the Notre-Dame cathedral and the teams working to save her from ruin. For over a year, I explored the sacred, the grotesque, the graceful and the defaced surfaces of Notre-Dame, turning the monument into a prism for self expression while documenting this historical moment of devastation and rebirth.
