Felicia Graham, Photographer 
Felicia has spent the last 20 plus years capturing not only her subjects’ most candid moments but has developed lifelong friendships through her ability to earn her subject’s trust and respect. Felicia has photographed hundreds of musicians, artists, actors as well as everyday people in ordinary situations transforming through her vision the mundane to something of which her audience takes special notice. Her photos have depth and express the unique complexities of her subjects as though her camera is the translator from that world to ours. Felicia’s work has appeared in numerous publications and she has spent since 2005 documenting the brawl and grit of The Texas Rollergirls. These days Felicia spends most of her time working in film and television, capturing images both on and off set.
In 2018 Felicia Graham published Rollergirls: the Story of Flat Track Derby.
