Melbourne-based photographer Emma Phillips documents the barren, surreal landscape of an abandoned salt mine in her series “Salt”. Published as a photo book, the series features scenes of white, minimally detailed dunes against pale blue skies. Mining equipment and abandoned vehicles stand out dramatically from the pale background as the only hint of a past human presence.
Phillips says she stumbled on the mine by chance, and shot for a few hours to capture as much of the landscape around her as possible. The work of Emma Phillips has been exhibited worldwide: “Salt” has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in China, Malaysia, and Australia.
