David Moore's Hotel room view, New York City - 1973 gave rise to a whole series of images concerned with an intellectual approach to photography, which he titled Up in New York. Some were minimalist. The images sequentially pulled the theory out to an ever finer, and more minimal edge. I was interested to see how far the concept could be reduced while still retaining validity.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
