Time magazine commissioned Moore to photograph the environmental artist Christo wrapping the cliffs at Little Bay in 93,000 m2 of polypropylene fabric with the help of 125 workers and 11 architecture students.
When it was near completion, a storm shredded the covering and it had to be redone. Moore took this shot from below, as wind lifted the fabric out over the cliff.

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.
