When asked to describe his approach to photography in 1969, Moore replied: à a photographer can circle all around a subject, shoot in a multitude of ways, yet still only capture a superficial view. What I try for, is to move in close à not in the physical sense, but to bore right into the subject, achieve a degree of penetration in depth.

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.
