'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Noteworthy: Camut's sculpture, “The Spark Machine,” won first place in the Art of the State competition in Harrisburg. The sculpture is part of his six-part “Suggestive Mechanical Expression” series, which documents the early phases of relationships and was inspired by his romance with photographer Alison Reaken.

Age: 24

Residence: Charleroi

Family: Parents, Theo and Dana.

Occupation: Camut's sculpture reflects his hometown's industrial past and a longtime fascination with machines. His work marries the mechanical and human elements of those influences; the mechanical artwork (which can be seen at www.pcamut.com) isn't complete until people use it. In addition, Camut works as a substitute art teacher.

Education: Camut graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2012 with bachelor's degrees in studio art and art education.

Quote: “I want to give my day to teaching art and being immersed in the arts by trying to engage students and giving them what art has given me over the years. If I'm able to do that, I'm able to continue throughout my day and go on to make my own art.”
