Despite his exploration of the intellectual response in photography the previous year, Moore could still be emotional. Discovering a collection of dismembered mannequins in a factory, Moore saw echoes of the holocaust. He no longer thought as a photojournalist: 'The world is a curious place, full of contradictions, and the medium now seems free to address this domain'.

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.
