Convenience Food Looks Kinda Gross In Cross-Section

If you've ever wondered what your pre-prepared food looks like while it's still sat in the tin, these pictures are probably enough to halt your curiosity—because the answer is: kinda gross.

Photographer Beth Galton wanted to see what food looked like from the inside. She explains:

This series was inspired by an assignment in which we were asked to cut a burrito in half for a client. Normally for a job, we photograph the surface of food, occasionally taking a bite or a piece out, but rarely the cross section of a finished dish. By cutting these items in half we move past the simple appetite appeal we normally try to achieve and explore the interior worlds of these products.


There are plenty more images over on her website—and some look more apetizing than others. [Beth Galton via Junk Culture via Neatorama]
