Murray Fredericks: Recent Work, Hamiltons Gallery, 13 Carlos Place, LondonW1, until 30 January 2015
This exhibition combines a selection of large-scale images from two bodies of work by the Australian photographer Murray Fredericks. Lake Eyre is a further development in his Salt series and each of the photographs was done at night and marks a new development in his work practice.
The second body of work comes from Topophilia: the Greenland Ice Sheets and can be regarded as the natural progression from the Salt and Lake Eyre series. As Fredericks says “The rationale was to locate the project in an even more minimal landscape than Lake Eyre, replacing the salt lake bed with snow and the clear desert air with an atmosphere of fine ice crystals.”
