Beth Galton is an accomplished photographer who specializes in still-life photography and food. In some of her most dramatic work, Beth teamed up with stylist Charlotte Omes to create a series of conceptual shots focusing on cut foods, but not in the ordinary way. Beth and Charlotte took everyday foods and cut away the sides to release the inner beauty of filled donuts, fancy ice cream, eggs, and most surprisingly, liquid foods. Charlotte and Beth discovered methods of using gelatin and other hardening agents to capture foods in their natural state and then sliced them open to capture the insides. Their delightful liquid pieces include shots of coffee as milk is being poured in, ramen noodles, and delicious soups. The photographs show us the beauty of the foods as we never experience them on the table.
