Over eleven years of construction, I photographed the Opera House for numerous publications and had the privilege of viewing the building from many angles à Unlike many contemporary structures, The Opera House seen from above is visually exciting à Surrounded on three sides by the harbour, the extraordinary forms and daring of the architectural concept are clearly visible.

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.
