Robert Mann Gallery is pleased to announce Vanity, a new body of work from Australian photographer, Murray Fredericks, in the artist’s first exhibition in the United States and with the gallery. Murray Fredericks’ ongoing relationship with Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre, where the series Vanity is captured, commenced in 2003, and consists of more than twenty journeys to the lake where he photographs for weeks at a time in the vast and boundless landscape.
Fredericks is not interested in documenting the literal forms of the landscape, but instead views it as medium in itself that has the potential to convey the emotional response of his experience and results in images that are utterly sublime. In infinite variations of color and clouds, sky and salt, light and landscape, tied together by an unbroken horizon, the viewer can step outside themselves, even just for a moment, to realize the powerful sensation of calm that nature can bestow on the anxieties inherent to the human condition.
