EVENING WITH AN ARTIST
AWARD WINNING CINEMATOGRAPHER & CO-DIRECTOR OF SALT
5.30PM – SATURDAY 25TH JUNE
PARKSIDE 110 MEETING ROOM
Murray Fredericks, cinematographer and co-director of Salt, which won twelve major international awards, played over 50 festivals and was screened on the ABC and PBS in the USA, will be presenting a free talk at this year’s Imaging & Entertainment Expo in Sydney
Represented by Hamiltons Gallery in London and Arc One Gallery in Melbourne Murray’s work as a stills photographer has been exhibited internationally including at the Louvre, in Shanghai and around Australia. His work sits in major public and private and corporate collections including the National Gallery of Victoria, National Portrait Gallery, Elton John, Valentino, ABN Amro and Macquarie Bank Collections
Fredericks’s work is derived from a perspective that views culture as something that cannot be wholly accounted for through social construct. It’s a view that sees some values as derived from a ‘time-less essence’. The work attempts to represent the experience when thought is temporarily suspended and the mind encounters ‘other’.
From the start of his career Murray Fredericks’ process has involved prolonged solo journeys to remote and often extreme locations. Adventure and endurance have never been goals in themselves and neither have the journeys been ‘spiritual’ or ‘monastic’ undertakings. By their very nature, though, the locations are difficult to access and require large amounts time spent in them to move the compositions past the ‘surface exotic’.
His work as a fine arts photographer has earned him international acclaim as a great artist. The opportunity to meet with him, see his photos and hear his views will be a highlight of Imaging & Entertainment Expo event.
Murray is speaking at 5.30pm in the Parkside 110 meeting room on Saturday 25th June at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre (South). Thanks to the Photo Marketing Association and the PIEA, there is no charge for this session and no reserved seating is required.
