Today I’d like to show you some works created by Australian photographer Murray Frederick. Only recently I’ve come across his name, but I’m absolutely thrilled by his creative work. He studied economics in Sydney but after five years of traveling (mainly in the Middle East) he began to finally focus more on photography and he mainly taught himself a large part of this art.
Frederick, however, isn’t only known for his photographic achievements. His first 30-minute documentary film “Salt” received 12 awards and international fame at film festivals in his country and abroad.
Over the years his movie took him again and again to Lake Eyre in Central Australia.
Even one of his most recent works led him to Lake Eyre. With his latest series “Vanity”, which is currently hosted in London’s Hamiltons Gallery until 14 June 2017, he wants to follow up to the emotions evoked in his “Salt” project.
This time the photographer uses mirrors in order to make the series even more unique. Frederick says about his work, “Instead of reflecting our own image the mirror is placed to avert our gaze from ourselves and into our surroundings and encourage us to deal with light, color and space.”
