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.
