Photo finish

The winners of our Alumni Weekend photo contest.


In the previous issue, we invited readers to capture scenes from Alumni Weekend on Instagram (“Hyde Park Glow,” Spring/16). More than 100 revelers doubled as shutterbugs over those four days. Here are the most original, most beautiful, and most UChicago photos they posted, as determined by the Magazine staff. If Alumni Weekend is a chance to relive days past in delight, these images let us relive the reliving.

Former Le Vorris & Vox Circus performer Ljubica Popovic, AB’06, captured an acrobat flying high in the Logan Center. Watch a short video from the #UChiAW performance shown above.

James Yee snapped this picture of alumni emerita (including his wife, Leah Catherine Condit Yee, AB’56) about to take a group shot at their Friday evening class dinner in the performance penthouse of the Logan Center for the Arts—a room with a view if ever there was one.

Moriah S. Grooms, AB’11, wore Walt Whitman’s head for her #UChiAW photo.
