Food Studies

Have you seen these photos of food cut perfectly in half?

The photo series is the brainchild of photographer Belth Galton and food stylist Charlotte Omnes. Galton specializes in food, and has done work for some of the biggest food companies out there — Swanson, Campbell’s, Stouffer, and Kraft, to name a few. Omnes worked for years in recipe development before she got into food styling. These cross-section studies are the best of what both have to offer, don’t you think?


Did you have any idea that milk swirling into coffee would be so beautiful?

(Although I have to admit: I had a hunch those donuts would look so tasty!)


To avoid digital retouching, the only change they made to the food to make them photographable was to add gelatin to the liquids.


I wish they had done this when we were little – we could have finally found the prize at the bottom of the cereal box!

Which photos are your favorite?

Those are amazing! It’s only 9:00am here in Virginia, but that ice cream is looking pretty good right about now; definitely my favorite.

I will confess that I had ice cream for breakfast this morning. It’s so hot that I figured well… there’s calcium in there someplace.

(I did add some fresh fruit. And I am 38 weeks pregnant. And these excuses are really just excuses. But ICE CREAM! At breakfast!)

you find the coolest things — some people are so talented — how did they ever think to do that?

I DID know the milk would look that beautiful…I have a boundless love for coffee that feels just like those swirls look. In fact, I’m going to go to bed now so that I can wake up and have a cup of coffee with honey and cream. Mmmmmm. It’s best with honey: Trust me! xo

Gauntlet thrown, Lindsey! I will test-drive the coffee-honey scenario this weekend. I can only hope it’s as delicious as you make it sound!
