Adrian Feliciano is an in-demand, highly respected Boston based professional photographer specializing in fire performer and flow artist photography, event photography, portrait photography, and photojournalism. He is a valued addition to the Fractaltribe team, bringing an enthusiasm and photography knowledge that aligns wonderfully with the rest of the Tribe. His experience with fast-paced low-light event photography, environmental portraiture, and photojournalism brings an intuitive and reactive ability to capture those fleeting moments, giving his photography a bold energy and ethereal quality that stands alone.  

Always on the go, Adrian Feliciano has volunteered his documentary skills as a photographer and as an assistant videographer for Wildfire Retreat in Ashford, CT; went on the road with Ohio's Echo Mecca in October 2015 as their exclusive tour photographer; covered numerous underground electronic music events with our friends in 4orce ProductionsLove Tribe, and Subterra's weekly EDM night; and stalked flow-artists at the Electric Haze. Never happy to be placed in a box, he branched out in 2016 into fine-art photography, and recently returned to his dark musical roots to photograph legendary death-metal bands Hate Eternal and Vital Remains at the Worcester Palladium and electro-industrial veterans Velvet Acid Christ at The Middle East in Cambridge, MA. 

Staying busy does not phase Adrian as his production rate is at a startlingly high level; his enthusiasm is infectious and gets the rest of the crew excited and ambitious to keep advancing with their own projects. He is always willing to discuss photography with anyone, and give pointers to anyone who asks, even when in the middle of covering one of Fractaltribe's crazy events

To commission photography coverage of an event, a sit-down promotional photo/video session with interview, a story to be told, or for help creating an awesome set of images for a portfolio, Adrian Feliciano is currently lurking the Boston area, and can be contacted via his webpage.

This is a photo gallery documenting of some of the effort involved, behind the scenes, to create the Fractaltribe Presents Fractalfest 2017: Reflections experience. 


JUL 2016 - Fractalfest

This year, after months of planning, dedication, and hard work, culminated in my first Fractalfest as a full fledged member of Fractaltribe. It rained for most of the weekend, and remained gray and cloudy in between rain bands until the magickal moment happened -- the clouds parted and the sun came out when Aaron took the stage on our last morning together.

dec 2015 - spiral future new year's eve

Raw footage of Fractaltribe's Aaron releasing 1,000 balloons over revelers at the secret Fractal Warehouse in Worcester, Massachusetts, at midnight on 31 Dec 2015. 

Fractaltribe Presents: Spiral Future New Years Eve was my favorite way to end what began as an emotionally brutal year for me. I was fortunate enough to spend it with new friends and family, and as part of a greater community of humans I never knew existed. All of this a huge surprise to me, coming from a perspective of someone whose whole background was never the underground psychedelic electronic music scene. Finding community and healing is possible.

We need it, badly, as a species.


sep 2015 - EXTRAWELT

Fractaltribe Presents: Extrawelt was my first experience at the Fractal Factory. I was amazed at seeing the scale of the deco -- all created in house by members of the Tribe -- experiencing the care shown in creating a safe and nurturing environment for the community at large, and witnessing something as simple as the opening potluck meal. As it was explained to me by everyone involved: the music selection, deco, art, environment, and expression is all done with the intention to create an environment where everyone is welcomed to find the healing space they need.


jul 2015 - FRACTALFEST

I had been given very strong encouraging by Boston, MA DJ, welder, and artist Artemis to check out Fractalfest. This would turn out to be my first festival ever, the first time I had been exposed to Fractaltribe, and to the underground psychedelic electronic music scene. I came in expecting a three day "rave in the woods." There was so much more to it, than that.
