Salt is Murray’s first project as a cinematographer and director. As a photographer, his major bodies of work have been produced in the Himalayas, Patagonia, Tasmania and, most recently, Lake Eyre.
Murray’s photographs from the Salt series were first exhibited with Andy Goldsworthy’s work at Boutwell Draper Gallery in Sydney. The series was then shown in Shanghai, in London at Hamiltons Gallery, and at the Louvre as part of Paris Photo. Now exhibiting with ARC 1 Gallery in Melbourne, many of the editions of the photographs have sold out and his work is in high demand.
Murray devotes years to each project, time that is necessary to move past the exotic surfaces
of the environments he works in. Ultimately though, the vast scale and power of these locations
dwarfs his sense of self, providing a fertile platform from which to produce work.
