Each year, internationally acclaimed photographer Murray Fredericks ventures to the heart of Lake Eyre, which lies in a remote corner of southern Australia. This journey represents a key stage along the photographer’s personal and professional path. Completely isolated, the horizon his only point of reference, and his thoughts his only companion, Murray is forced to brave storms, mud, lightning and all manner of problems; yet his biggest obstacle is salt, which is unescapable. In the meantime, his camera captures scenes and intense moments that prove beauty lies hidden in the midst of this bleak, empty, desolate land.
