Blog and Photo Updates From Fractalfest 2017: Reflections
"Our world is made up of reflections. We see a likeness of ourselves in all that we observe. Because everything our senses interact with sends something back, we exist in a state of never ending feedback from our environment...Moments such as these can only be created with your help. Come prepared to shine, and to be greeted by shiny beings. Join the dance through the hallway of mirrors."
Fractalfest begins on the 27th of July and ends on the 30th of July. What strange, magickal, and weird things will you see in the Fractal Forest?
For anyone who knows me, my favorite subject to photograph is fire, and the way people interact with fire. Fractalfest, this year, provided another opportunity for me to indulge a little in fire photography. Check it out!
Fractalfest's theme this year was that of "Reflections," and how that manifested was up to each individual person's interpretation....As a photographer, for me, "Reflections," manifested in my every day interactions with people...that I am allowed to record and then share back with the greater community.
Fractaltribe places a huge degree of emphasis on respect. It includes the design of our sound system. Some events like to boast about how powerful their sound system is. Fractaltribe takes great pride in how quiet our sound system is.

Behind the Scenes
"Our intention with this fifth installment of Fractalfest is to create a moment in which we can perceive these reflections as something not separate from ourselves. From this moment we hope you are able to take with you something of substance: a new friend, a new passion, a new perspective, something for your brain to chew on."
