Photographer

Camille Cohen

Camille Cohen is a French-American photographer. She is currently a Journalism student at San Francisco State University, and has chosen photojournalism as her area of concentration along with a French minor.  She draws inspiration from her time living in both France and California and is based in San Francisco until further notice. Live music (of all kinds) and deep, jewel-toned colors spark joy. While she loves balance in her photos, she’s working on applying it to her real life as well. Check out more of her work at camilleelizecohen.com.
