Between the Lines examines the over policed and under protected, life between us and them: examining police-community relations.

Congratulations to Carlos Javier Ortiz who is one of three recipients of the 2018 CatchLight Fellowship. In its second year, the CatchLight Fellowship continues to recognize photographers for their excellence in depicting visual stories of crucial issues — ideally motivating action for social change.

Carlos won for his project “Between the Lines” which looks at relations between the communities of Del Paso Heights and South Sacramento in California and the police. Learn more about his project and the fellowship in this article in the Washington Post.
