Photographer Beth Galton (Galton Beth) and food stylist Charlotte Omnes (Charlotte Omnès) have decided to take a critical look at the foods we eat every day.
When choosing objects for shooting, they realized that photographing products in pairs are usually much more efficient and visually more attractive. "Shown together, they create more symbolic images," — says Galton.
1. Of course, other photographers have already cut the product in half, however this practice is still quite unusual. The creation of such images is technically difficult and time consuming, but worth it.
2. There is no single approach to the process of cutting and shooting. "Each object had its own problems, which Charlotte and I were trying to solve," says Galton.
3. Cut in half some products was pretty easy, for others it took a variety of tricks, from adding gelatin to the soup in this picture to use photoshop.
4. For the creation of works drew two digital retouchers.
5. Here the Retoucher had to redo the bottom of the container with the chicken.
6. This picture was one of the most beloved of Beth Galton.
7. Another favorite is the image of cereal with milk. For its creation it took a few attempts.
8. This photo was one of the hardest for authors. Initially the chicken in frozen state tried to cut with a hacksaw, but in the end I used a band saw.
9. To preserve the visual appeal of the authors were very careful in the selection of products and refused to cut the cake.
10. Omnes and Galton chose only those products that look like both of them.
11. When Beth Galton asked ate if they have ever what was left after their experiments, she said, "Never!"
12. After the completion of this project, Galton and Omnes decided to take a little break, doing other ideas. "This does not mean that we will not return to this, says Galton. But while nothing is planned".
