The University of Cape Town’s (UCT) bumper mid‑year graduation season saw 6 175 students graduate virtually during six faculty ceremonies, which took place at 18:00 each evening. Between 12 and 19 July graduates were on upper campus to have their pictures taken in their gowns, as well as with the university’s vice-chancellor (VC), Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng. Some also got the opportunity to be capped by the VC. This selection documents day one and two (12–13 July) of this graduation season. Lerato Maduna was there to capture it all on camera.
