Our theme for this year’s Summit, The Change We Want to See
, reflects the unique power of photography, visual journalism, and creative practices to drive social impact. “Images are instrumental to how we understand our world. They connect people emotionally to issues, promote deeper understanding, build trust, and spark action,” says Elodie Mailliet Storm, CEO of CatchLight. “The Summit is a place where a global community of visual storytellers and leaders in media and technology can gather, share ideas, and push the field forward through partnership and innovation.” * CatchLight x FotoFest: West Coast Review Sessions
