Taking the Leap

Warning: looking at this photo may speed up your heart rate. The spectacular shot taken at Brighton Resort is a collaboration between two U alumni—photographer Adam Barker BA’04 and extreme skier Julian Carr BS’04—who met on campus 20 years ago. The duo garnered international attention earlier this year when this photo won gold in the X Games Aspen 2019 Zoom photography competition. Out of the thousands of photos taken together since their college days, this one, Barker says, is hands down his favorite. Carr agrees. “I’ll be proud to show this one to my grandchildren someday.”
