Anybody can take a picture but few people can take photography to an art form. It takes someone who has a different way of looking at things. Lloyd’s work looks more like paintings than photographs. He finds art in things that others think are too commonplace to even look at. That takes a special person. Lloyd is a special person.”The concentration for Shillabeer’s AP portfolio is “Walls” and the 12 photographs included were taken over a two year period and from as near as Pete’s Package Store to as far away as Scotland.He and Smith chose the photographs from the thousands he has taken.

Some of them do look like paintings.”The “subjects” of Shillabeer’s photographs have been found in the architecture of Scotland and Ireland and historic Savannah, Georgia and even the stairwell of the USS Alabama.He captured the beauty of both a northern Alabama sunset and the rotting foundation in a dilapidated warehouse in the southern part of the state.That ability to find the beauty in the all things earned him the prestigious TAC Jean Lake scholarship.
