    POV [#2308] Salt In his search for "somewhere I could point my camera into pure space, " award-winning photographer Murray Fredericks began making annual solo camping trips to remote Lake Eyre and its salt flats in South Australia. These trips have yielded remarkable photos of a boundless, desolate yet beautiful environment where sky, water and land merge. Made in collaboration with documentary filmmaker Michael Angus, "Salt" is the film extension of Fredericks' work at Lake Eyre, interweaving his photos and video diary with time-lapse sequences to offer viewers the liberating and disorienting experience of being thrown into an infinite dimension of mind and spirit.
    "Salt" will be accompanied by a selection of shorts: Ellen Frick's "A Healing Art" delves into the world of artificial eye makers as they rekindle hope for victims of tragedy; and animated shorts from the Peabody Award-winning oral-history project StoryCorps - these shorts capture the stories of everyday Americans in their own voices.

    • Week of 8/25: Sutro Tower work (including KQED 9 Over the Air)
