In his new series, Vanity, photographer Murray Fredericks found inspiration near Lake Eyre. Now, Hamiltons Gallery presents a new exhibition about Fredericks’ last project, where one can find pictures with the skyline as the main protagonist. Fredericks decided to include a mirror (that’s the reason of the name: vanity) because he wanted it to play with the lights of the landscape. His aim was that the viewer feels that he’s in front of a window. The artist declares: “The mirror can be seen as emblematic of our obsession with ourselves, individually, and collectively. In the ‘Vanity’ series [...] the mirror is positioned to draw our gaze out and away from ourselves, into the environment, driving us towards an emotional engagement with light, colour and space”.
