is a documentary by internationally-renowned photographer Murray Fredericks' on his annual journey to photograph the beautiful yet bleak landscape of remote Lake Eyre in South Australia. Reflective, yet humorous, SALT
records Fredericks’ isolation from humanity while he connects with nature.
The story delves into the artist’s creative process while dealing with everything from severe weather to equipment malfunctions, all with a bit of humor. The stunning images alone make this a journey worth watching.
Told with subtlety, care and gentle, dry humour, 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 Spheres, it attempts to identify what lies beneath the surface of our reality and how 'something' can be produced from 'nothing'.
