Cut Food by Beth Galton

New York-based food photographer Beth Galton, with the help of her food stylist Charlotte Omnès, took these amazing photographs of different dishes cut in half.

"I am a studio photographer who shoots for advertising agencies, design companies and editorial magazines. My focus is on food and still life. I shoot TV commercials as well for advertising clients."

"This series was inspired by an assignment in which we were asked to cut a burrito in half for a client. Normally for a job, we photograph the surface of food, occasionally taking a bite or a piece out but rarely the cross section of a finished dish."

"Charlotte Omnès, the food stylist and I thought it would be interesting to explore the interiors of various foods particularly items commonplace to our everyday life. By cutting these items in half we move past the simple appetite appeal we normally try to achieve and explore the interior worlds of these products."

"Charlotte approached the food in various ways. Some items were straight forward and looked great being cut in half without any manipulation. The donuts and ice cream were examples of this."

"Other items required food styling tricks such as using gelatin to solidify liquid in the soup cans and Kitchen Bouquet to color the bits of food in the noodle shot."

"Daniel Hurlburt, our digital tech/retoucher, was greatly involved and helped images that needed some adjusting and assembling all the elements we shot for the coffee pouring."

"Many of the other foods were surprising when we cut them open. Cutting the soups in half did not look like what we expected. Many of the bits were hidden and Charlotte had to rework them to get the look we wanted."
