The life of a photojournalist was not always exciting. In 1956, Moore was sent by Life to cover the Suez conference. He spent five days standing around waiting for something to happen. The Suez conference was held in closed session and there was little to photograph except arriving and departing delegates. We press photographers swarmed on the steps of the London mansion Lancaster House like parasitic limpets.

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.
