Kevin Close, a Carleton senior from Salt Lake City, won the grand prize in the Associated Colleges of the Midwest’s off-campus studies photo contest. Close, a religion major, won for his image “A Long Car Ride,” a photo taken during his studies in Mongolia in the fall of 2007. He simply describes the photo as “One student, one translator, and ten goats.” Ben Barclay, a senior political science and international relations double major from Ames, Iowa, earned honorable mention honors for his photo “Abandoned.” His image, which shows an orphan sitting alone off the streets of Cairo, was taken during Barclay’s time at American University in Cairo in the fall of 2007.
