This group of nuns wearing traditional wimples was photographed from the mezzanine level of Washington National Airport, as they farewelled one of their order leaving for South America. The image is a visual puzzle, reminiscent of flowers or origami - until the hands are seen towards the bottom of the photograph.
Alan Davies, The State Library of NSW
 
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.
