The artisanal cuisine of Mexico’s home cooks
Penny De Los Santos began photographing as a way to understand her diverse cultural background. Born in Europe to a Mexican-American military family that settled in small town Texas, her family history has been tied and inspired by the Texas-Mexico border for generations. Her food photography is the lens through which she explores and celebrates culture, history and community. She is a senior contributing photographer to Saveur magazine and regular contributor to National Geographic magazine.
Her professional work web page is here and her blog is here.
