The summer after completing his undergraduate studies in engineering science, U of T alumnus Ben Ouyang attended a biomedical engineering conference in Istanbul. One evening, he snapped what he considers his luckiest shot: “A minute later, the sun would have set below the picnic table. A minute earlier, the picnic bench would have been empty,” he says.

For Ouyang, who is currently working on his MD/PhD at U of T, the photograph captured the calm essence of that summer away — “a rare moment to enjoy a sunset with no stressors chasing me.”
