Back in sweltering August I photographed batik artist Mary Edna Fraser alongside Kristen Gehrman for a Freunde von Freunden portrait. From the laborious process that goes into each silk batik, to playing in her band The Lime and the Coconuts ("We can be any type of music because I am the lime and I hire the coconuts!"), Mary Edna carries an unmistakable air of joie de vivre. You can find more photos and the full interview here.
Freunde von Freunden
I always enjoy Freunde von Freunden's fascinating features on creative people all over the world, so it's truly a pleasure when Kristen Gehrman and I get to team up and contribute a Charleston-based portrait.
