SALT

When landscape & interiors photographer, Murray Fredericks, went to Lake Eyre (South Australia) for the 14th time, he came back with footage (containing some unbelievable timelapse photography) that would see his documentary, Salt, shown at the Sydney Film Festival and a photographic exhibition that would take him all over the world. It's a mesmerising film of an incredible landscape, a place where the horizon is 360 degrees where no matter where you look, there is NOTHING around but the ground and the sky and sometimes they don't even exist separately. There are times when the salt flats go forever and merge with the sky until the edge of the earth disappears. When a storm brings rain the earth becomes a mirror image of the sky and night brings thousands of magical stars. It's like like nothing you've ever seen before.

Images of his campsite and the salty landscape from the trailer above and the photographs that resulted below.

These are incredible. I can't even imagine the complex emotions one would have in solitude out there, with nothing but time, space and a camera on your hands. Again, incredible.

Thank you for posting this one.
