Storyline

SALT is the story of award winning and internationally renowned photographer, Murray Fredericks on his annual solo pilgrimage to the heart of Lake Eyre in the remote north corner of South Australia. It is a piece on the personal journey of the artist, the creative process and the landscape itself. Alone on the most featureless landscape on earth, Murray's personal video diary captures the beauty of this bleak, empty and desolate environment - and provides the catalyst for an unexpected personal transformation. Told with subtlety, care and gentle dry humor, SALT is the story of what emanates from emptiness. By combining the breathtaking imagery of this surreal landscape with the hauntingly delicate sounds of Aajinta's "Harmonic Sphere's, it attempts to identify what lies beneath the surface of our reality and how 'something' can be produced from 'nothing'. SALT interweaves Murray's sublime pictures, with innovative time-lapse sequences, and illuminating and exposing video diary ... Written by Michael Angus

Better than you think
27 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Murray Fredericks has caught onto something lost. This short film was great. It was more of an artistic perspective, both photographic and cinematographic, of extreme conditions. It felt more like soul searching than adventures, but that is OK. It felt genuinely...human. I was surprised to find how moving this was. His technical know how and expertise made the difference. Staring down the lens of his cameras I am sure only caught a glimpse of the overwhelming feelings associated with them in first-person, but wow. That was very, very interesting. A unique struggle with the human and the void. The photography was amazing. I wish to thank you personally.
