Who: Phyllis Bankier, photographer
I’m a photographer who loves to showcase details and have a preference for shooting flowers and food. Often, the small unnoticed details are what compel me to capture these beauties. Walking through woodlands, prairies and gardens one does not always notice the intricacies of nature, especially in flowers. My photographs give me an opportunity to explore the architecture and designs and enable viewers to see the finer points of a subject. My photographs are portraits, capturing the essence of beauty in a moment of time.
The Blooming Lotus. I’ve been trying to photograph it for several years and feel I’ve really captured the essence of it.
In a previous career, I was a cabinet maker.
