Clifford Coffin, 1947, self portrait, unpublished.  Coffin had no formal training, but once he had decided as a young man to become a photographer, he had the nerve to send his first efforts directly to an art director at Vogue, who gave him advice and encouragement. When many photographers were shipped off to war in 1942, Coffin was given his big break, hired by the magazine on a trial basis, with no pay.
