Beth Galton’s photography is her only identity among her peers in the advertising agency of the United States. Her work draws inspiration from sensual, organic classicism of fine art photographers Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, and Edward Steichen. Beth was always inclined towards a photographic representation of food on the table. It was a peculiar attitude when she had started but today, she is the milestone for success for various established photographers. She has kick-started TV cooking to what it is today. For her, food is a piece of beauty and half her life was spent in making people believe in what she does through her photographs.

Some photos display elegance in composition, while others re-discover the revelation of the asymmetric fillings of three powdered, jelly doughnuts.
