Murray Fredericks on

- Nothing on Earth


Following Fredericks works in the award-winning 2009 documentary Salt, which saw filmmaker Michael Angus follow Fredericks on his journey to Lake Eyre, the duo have done it again, making numerous trips to Greenland for Fredericks' latest body of work.The result is captured in Nothing on Earth, a 58-minute documentary that opened at the Sydney Film Festival on July 9.


“For me it’s the visual quality of the landscape,” Fredericks says. “My work for the last 10 or 15 years has been concerned with landscapes devoid of features. After my work with the salt plains of Lake Eyre, I thought there was more to do, but there aren’t really many other places like it. [The Greenland] ice sheets seemed to be the natural extension."


“But I wasn’t expecting it to be as challenging as it was. It wasn’t until the fourth trip I got any meaningful results."

Photography as Art

The purpose of this award is to encourage photographers to lift their thinking beyond traditional photographic criteria such as sharpness towards the qualities that characterise Great Art. This is easy to say but hard to define. Ideally the image should capture something eternal, beautiful, noteworthy, striking or unusual. It would be a rare image that achieved all of these!

People looking for examples should look to the all-time great art works for inspiration. Clearly these paintings will include but not be restricted to: portraits (such as Rembrandt, Leonardo), landscapes (such as Constable, van Gogh), abstracts (such as Rothko, Kandinsky), human form (such as Ruben, Rodin), and expressionism (such as Munch, Monet).

Any amount or method of photo manipulation is acceptable, however the original image must have been taken by a camera or some other photographic process (e.g. a scanner).

The aim should be to produce an image that one would not be surprised to find hanging in the Perth Art Gallery.
