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.

SALT interweaves Murray's sublime pictures, with innovative time-lapse sequences, and illuminating and exposing video diary ... Written by
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.
