Photographer Camille Madeline Coffin of Levittown named a winner in magazine contest


Portrait photographer Camille Madeline Coffin of Levittown was recently named a winner of the “B&W: 2022 Single Image Award” contest, curated by BLACK & WHITE—a magazine for Collectors of Fine Photography.
The artist’s submission piece, titled “Connected with Nature,” is a composite—two separate images overlayed to form one. Using a studio lighting portrait, a landscape photograph, and a bit of imagination, the artist’s final touches were applied using her skills in digital imaging.
“‘Connected with Nature’ has special meaning to me,” Coffin said. “I’m passionate about the subjects in the two photographs and therefore, blending them to form one piece of art was the height of the creative process.
“After the piece was completed, I submitted it to two local art shows. I just had a feeling that this particular piece was going to ‘travel far’ if I did my best to promote it. So when I was presented with the opportunity to exhibit on an international level—and in a print publication—I took a chance. Receiving that notification of acceptance from the magazine’s staff was a dream come true!”
