Audrey Banks

We Are The Banks | 36″ x 24″ | Black and White digital print | 2020

Artist Statement

Audrey Banks is best known for her wedding photography. She enjoys shooting 35 mm black and white photos and processing them in the darkroom in her spare time, thinking out of the box when creating her images. Audrey loves to capture in-the-moment candids hoping that others can feel the emotions with each photo. She is telling the stories of others behind the lens, one shot at a time. Audrey embraces the unknown, going into each image with an openness towards potential stories told from her view. 
“Life is Messy & Chaotic. I want to capture the raw and vulnerable yet beautiful moments.”
