David Moore stayed with Black Star agency for 38 years. During an assignment photographing a Flying Doctor based at Broken Hill, he came across Finke Bob and his wife Jesse at the small community of Finnis Springs. When I requested permission to take their photograph, they agreed, and stood firm and proud in the face of the camera. They had few material possessions in life but a great deal of dignity.

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.
