Assigned by Life magazine to cover the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, Moore decided to concentrate on the new queen's subjects. He thought of them as more than spectators. Whole families waited on footpaths throughout a depressingly wet night to witness the procession. This huddled group reminds me of a sculpture cast in bronze

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.
