This austere high-key image, with its hint of humanity, reflects Moore's preoccupation with design. He was always concerned that others should appreciate monochromatic images. Most newspapers, many books and exhibitions of photography continue to provide information without resorting to colour à We read the images quite clearly because of our familiarity with this essentially abstract medium.

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.
