These Lascar seamen repainting the hull of the P&O Himalaya were photographed from the dock below the liner. For Moore, the raking light was irresistible. Light is the photographer's closest ally and pictures can be created between the play of light and shadow. These strong diagonals make interesting abstract shapes and the rivets appear as a pattern of stitches on a quilt of steel.
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.
