ABOUT BETH GALTON
A born and bred New Yorker, Beth is continually inspired by the sights, sounds, and tastes of the city she calls home. The path to a prolific career as an award-winning New York City photographer began in a childhood animated with Marvel Comics, choral music, a natural science education, flute lessons, and the chaotic and composed meals she had at home and abroad. Photography became her method to synthesize life.
Drawn to the organic classicism of Edward Weston, Ansel Adams and Edward Steichen, Beth’s work is informed by her sensitivity to how light falls and shapes the subject. Her work is exceptional in its ability to invest her images with emotion. Whether making a photo look so compelling you want to pick it up off the page, or conceptually exploring an idea, she applies her deep knowledge and love of craft to each photograph she creates.
Beth’s personal warmth and generosity infuse her working and shooting environment. She enjoys creative and collaborative relationships with stylists and Art Directors many of whom she works with again and again. Her images and short films tell stories – the story of memories, of what and how we eat together, a love of nature, and the pleasure of shared experiences.
