Main Description
Photographer Murray Fredericks' annual camping trips to remote Lake Eyre and its salt flats in South Australia have yielded remarkable photos of a boundless, desolate yet beautiful environment where sky, water and land merge. Salt interweaves his photos and video diary with time-lapse sequences to create the liberating and disorienting experience of being thrown into an infinite dimension of mind and spirit.
