Dominated by a Kiwi boot polish advertisement, this stark photograph marks a transition for Moore from the modernism of Max Dupain to the realism of American documentary photography. One of his influences was Walker Evans, who wrote that:Art in photography may come down to this: it is the capture and projection of the delights of seeing; it is the defining of observation full and felt.
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.
