Vanity

30.05.2017

Murray Fredericks is a photographer from Australia. He spent a lot of time doing solo journeys to remote and often extreme locations. In doing so, he experienced how time in isolation, surrounded by powerful landscapes, can have a huge impact on one’s sense of self. His current project ‘Vanity’ is part of his longstanding series ‘Salt’ and also deals with the theme of connecting to your environment.

Murray places mirrors in the middle of Lake Eyre to create an amazing effect. He explains; “Standing in the silken water, surrounded only by a boundless horizon, I sense a release, a surrendering as the self dissolves into the light and space.” Murray’s works are currently displayed at the Hamiltons Gallery in London until June 14th.
