Beth Galton is a New York-based photographer with a background in natural sciences. Her current series, exhibited at Agora, involves collecting the memories of her family and experiences, then translating them into her photographs.
She seeks to bridge the past and present through her pictures. Galton's artwork is a reminder that memories can be transformational and should be celebrated and cherished. She states, "These elements of my history are the lens through which I explore the world. Collecting objects and allowing time to affect botanical matter are the tools I use to construct still-life portraits. The stories speak to the cycles of nature, our connection to aging and mortality, and the fragility and resilience of the human experience."
