Para su nueva serie Vanity, el fotógrafo Murray Frederick encontró la inspiración a orillas de un lago. Ahora abre exposición en la galería Hamiltons de Londres para presentar esta serie de fotografías, con el horizonte como protagonista. Frederick decidió incluir un enorme espejo (de ahí el nombre, Vanidad) para que jugara con los reflejos y la luz del paisaje y diera la sensación de que estamos ante una ventana. El artista declara: “El espejo puede verse como un emblema de la obsesión con nosotros mismos, individualmente pero también colectivamente. En la serie “Vanity”, el espejo se coloca para dibujar nuestra contemplación hacia fuera y hacia nuestro interior, hacia el medio ambiente, conduciéndonos hacia una unión emocional con el color, la luz y el espacio”.

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”.
