Visura is delighted to announce that Koral Carballo has joined the Visura Mentorship Program.

Throughout the one-year program, Carballo will be mentored by National News Visual Editor at The New York Times Clinton Cargill for six months starting January 2021.  The focus of the mentorship is to support the photographer in reaching their goals, to share ideas, assist in editing their work, give feedback and determine what are the next steps toward finding publishing platforms for their project.

The mentorship began in June of 2020, during which time Koral has been meeting with Visura founder Adriana Teresa Letorney to receive guidance and support around the industry, and ways in which to continue evolving.
"Working with visionary leaders in the photography, news, and media sectors is empowering and inspiring. This opportunity reinforces my own and my generation's commitment to transforming the visual narrative of this industry with new diverse voices and visual stories. I am proud and grateful for this opportunity."—Koral Carballo
