Upcoming Head On Spotlight - Murray Fredericks

Born (1970) and raised in Sydney, Australia, Murray Fredericks studied politics and economics at Sydney University. Following his undergraduate degree, he spent five years traveling in the Middle East and in the Himalaya. The experience of spending large amounts of time in these ‘powerful’ locations provided the basis for his approach to his photography.

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’.

Date & time: 6pm Wednesday 11 November (Sydney time)
Price: Free Head On
