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.

Mother Jones recently published a piece with text by Julie Winokur and photos by Ed Kashi about immigrant detention in the United States.
Julie writes, “When asylum seekers arrive in the United States they face a harsh reality. The ones who aren’t illegally turned away at the border are often sequestered, shackled, and transported to a detention facility that resembles prison.”

Gender, sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement have sparked one of the most intense debates of recent years. How does the conversation move forward from here? What does it take for real change to happen?
The 7 women of VII — Anush Babajanyan, Linda Bournane Engelberth, Jessica Dimmock, Ilvy Njiokiktjien, Maggie Steber, Nichole Sobecki and Sara Terry — held a roundtable with a frank discussion about the issues facing women — and men — and our industry today.
Carlos Javier Ortiz has been shortlisted for the 2018 Catchlight Fellowship which “recognizes excellence in the novel use of photography to depict and bring awareness to challenging social issues.” His project “Between the Lines” examines the over policed and under protected, life between us and them: examining police-community relations. The Fellowship, which includes $30,000 awarded to each of three photographers, will be announced on April 2, 2018.
