CatchLight’s Behind the Lens series is primarily interested in longer term projects that show a unique and personal approach from the visual storyteller’s perspective. Selection will be determined on the basis of existing work. This opportunity is not an assignment. In addition to highlighting timely, important work on their Instagram feed, this series provides their audiences and community with behind-the-scenes insights into the visual storytelling process.
