The Hunchback of Notre-Dame is a French Gothic novel by Victor Hugo published in January 14, 1831. The title refers to the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, on which the story is centered. Quasimodo, the novel's protagonist, is the bell-ringer of Notre Dame and a barely verbal hunchback. Ringing the church bells has made him deaf. Abandoned as a baby, he was adopted by Claude Frollo. Quasimodo's life within the confines of the cathedral and his only two outlets — ringing the bells and his love and devotion for Frollo — are described. He ventures outside the Cathedral rarely, since people despise and shun him for his appearance. The notable occasions when he does leave are his taking part in the Festival of Fools — during which he is elected the Pope of Fools due to his perfect hideousness — and his subsequent attempt to kidnap Esmeralda, his rescue of Esmeralda from the gallows, his attempt to bring Phoebus to Esmeralda, and his final abandonment of the cathedral at the end of the novel. It is revealed in the story that the baby Quasimodo was left by the Gypsies in place of Esmeralda, whom they abducted...

A very imaginative framing. Lot of lines to look at and clever presence of the man in the light area.
I like it very much !

Another belter. The location was well chosen (did you come across it by chance, or know about it?) I suspect the former, as it appears to be a pedestrian underpass or carpark (don't know what the T-Centre is). The monochrome works, as always, the signature angle is there, and the exquisite framing. Great stuff.

A superb location with lines, surfaces and the tilt to enhance the human silhouette going downstairs, well translated in B&W mood.
