Salt II : Frederick Murray's visions of the unusual Lake Eyre

After his exhibition at Hamiltons in 2007, Australian photographer Murray Fredericks has continued adding to his ongoing series Salt II, realised at Lake Eyre. The exhibition is made up of colour photographs in large and panorama formats.

Murray chose Lake Eyre for his photographs due to its perfectly flat surface and razor sharp horizon. He was faced with extreme conditions on his travels. Travelling only with a bicycle and carrying water, a tent, camera and equipment.

In addition to this, temperatures at Lake Eyre range between frost and 40 degrees. Although some small animals live there, it is not necessarily a hospitable environment. Hence his photographs often come across as having been realised under strikingly strenuous physical and spiritual conditions.

His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, and is in included in the Museum of Sydney, der National Portrait Gallery, Canberra and the Sir Elton John collections. His documentary film, which was awarded at the Atlanta Film Festival will also be on show. There is a short preview on www.saltdoco.com - and a piece of sky here at GoSee.
