“Like the rest of America, California is unformed, innovative, ahistorical, hedonistic, acquisitive and energetic — only more so.” — Wallace Stegner
Everything in California is big, including dreams and challenges. How do we visualize the New California Dream in one of the most innovative, hectic and expensive places in America? It is America’s laboratory for the fiscal pressures shaping our housing, jobs and education and a rapidly changing future. CatchLight will identify a California-focused photographer who demonstrates work that broadly reflects any aspect of life in California today — interpretations can show impact to any of a variety of issues including but not limited to race, environment, health, democracy, immigration, gender and identity.
We invite applicants to interpret these themes broadly and encourage proposals from visual storytellers working in diverse creative mediums.
