    Artwork by Allyson Stone Featured in Skiles Hallway

    Allyson Stone describes herself as an artist, photographer, dreamer, storyteller, activist. "I am a storyteller, and although I like to use words and my voice, my soundest tool is my camera. I take photographs in order to share my perspective with others. I am inspired by people and animals; anything in which the inner soul radiates. I try my best to bring a fresh viewpoint to the story by utilizing different angles, cropping, and the rule of thirds. The photographs I create are my conversation with the world. My voyeuristic, wallflower tendencies lend me to be most comfortable with candid photography. I most often shoot with my Nikon DSLR, but prefer to use my Pentax film camera. I can be found in abandoned buildings of Atlanta, small town streets of Adams, NY, Yosemite National Park,  the kaleidoscope painted landscape of Valparaiso, Chile, and places not yet exposed."
