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

Surprisingly enjoyable
21 July 2011 | by ((e.g. London, England)) – See all my reviews

I had no idea what I was going to see, so a photographer's journey towards the centre of Lake Eyre in Australia wasn't what I expected.

However, the film has a good narrative, and enough time-lapses of the night/day sky to satisfy many of my wanderlust dreams.

It was interesting to see various items of (undoubtedly expensive) modern photographic paraphernalia being deployed around the camp site, as well as the surreal plaque like surface of the lake with white crystalline salt forced up between the edges of the (slightly darker) horizontal salt plaques.

The pay-off of the entire film are the images that were produced in this expedition (and a couple of others) - breathtakingly good.

All things considered, an uplifting documentary!
