"In this appetizing series, still life and food photographer Beth Galton gives us a fresh perspective on some basic, everyday meals. Cut Food is a series of just that—food that is cut in half, giving us a glimpse at the gooey, delicious mid-sections of a doughnut, a bowl of soup, and even a hot dog on a bun. Your stomach will growl with hunger as you flip through this eye-catching collection that puts a spark in our otherwise dulled perceptions of food and has us looking differently at the things we eat."

"Growing up during the , Harry Gamboa Jr., [a Los Angeles-based artist,] resented how Chicanos were often portrayed...His photo series was his response. 'What was used in the media was this idea of creating inferiority or guiltiness,' he says. 'But these [Chicano] men had contributed to and saved my life.' Since 1972, Gamboa has created art in various media and formats interpreting the contemporary urban Chicano experience...He chose people who have 'a stance of being affirmative in their own lives,' he says. His subjects are professors, activists, fathers, war veterans and anyone who has contributed to his life."

"Food shots are everywhere — hipsters, grandma's, foodies can't stop sharing every appetizer, dessert and cocktail they ingest. Photos fly to Instagram before taking the first bite. It's annoying to many, particularly when the flash of their smartphone's camera in a restaurant distracts you from enjoying your own meal. But wouldn't it be less infuriating if you knew they were posting a photo to help a good cause? That's the aim of FoodShareFilter. The Instagram picture-filter was created by DDB Spain to raise money for an El Salvadoran charity. The cost of the $0.99 download from the App Store and $1.16 on Google Play gets donated to an agricultural program in El Salvador run by Manos Unidas."
