Still life photographer Beth Galton might have boggled people's minds when she decided to cross-section whole cooked meals, but she's back at it again in a more subtle way with her latest project titled 'Idioms.' Instead of cutting, she cleverly juxtaposes two images that may seem unassuming at first but then will certainly get people thinking.
For instance, Beth Galton pairs raw meat and uncooked potatoes together to clearly symbolize the common phrase, 'Meat and potatoes,' as well as an unbroken egg and a chicken leg for a more morbid thought. There are more conceptual food photos to keep people busy as well. Whether Beth Galton focuses on phrases, shapes or more, Idioms is captivating.
Based in New York City, Beth Galton is represented by TRUE MGMT.
