A Glimpse Through the Lenses of Rice’s Photographers

With over 50 years of collective experience, university photographers Tommy LaVergne and Jeff Fitlow have captured thousands of images documenting campus life at Rice. Their photos have immortalized once-in-a-lifetime moments such as the Dalai Lama’s 2007 campus visit and the turning of Willy’s Statue, to everyday moments that capture the spirit of the Rice community. We asked Tommy and Jeff to share a sampling of these images — and the stories of how they came to be.
