Moore looked along the railing of the Galileo Galilei as it docked, searching for subjects. He saw 'Apprehension, doubt, excitement and even a little fear à expressed in the faces of passengers coming to a new land'. On this elderly woman's face was a gamut of expressions, captured in this triptych.

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.
