We are thrilled to announce the first CatchLight Fellows: Sarah Blesener, Brian Frank and Tomas Van Houtryve.
Each Fellow will receive a $30,000 grant and be paired with a CatchLight media partner—The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting or The Marshall Project—to complete a proposed project that builds upon past work, demonstrates measurable social awareness and expands understanding of how visual art can be used to communicate vital social issues.
Sarah, Brian and Tomas were selected from more than 300 photographers from around the world.
About the Fellowship
“CatchLight Fellows are Fellows for life. We are activating a vibrant community of creative thought leaders whose work will be progressively informed and enhanced by interaction with each other,” said our founder and Executive Director, Nancy Farese.
Each year, the CatchLight Fellowship will recognize three lens-based artists who have demonstrated excellence in the novel use of photography to bring awareness to challenging social issues. The deadline for applications for the 2018 Fellowship is January 31, 2018.
