Penny De Los Santos
Penny De Los Santos was born in Europe to an American military family she is 42 years old.
Her family is a military family that lived in Europe and the settled on the Texas-Mexico border.
Her trademark/style is capturing a culture through food and this has allowed her to travel the world.
She became famous because of winning a lot of awards and landing a job with National Geographic.
She has said "My work is intended to capture one's culture through its food"
Others have said "Penny’s food and travel work is truly like no other. Having began documenting events for National Geographic and creating meaningful series like her Tejano Project before moving into food photography, her work stands apart from so much out there currently. It evokes a documentary-like emotion, visceral and meaningful yet gorgeously beautiful. She is an award-winning photographer with clients like Martha Stewart, Texas Monthly, National Geographic, Newsweek and Time,"
I appreciate Penny's understanding and love for the cultures she is depicting through her photos.
