Painter and etcher Fred Williams was one of 62 artists photographed for In the Making, a book about art in Australia and its creation. Written by Craig McGregor, it was illustrated by David Moore and David Beale. As McGregor noted: For someone who has been described as Australia's finest landscape painter, Fred Williams suffers from a surprising disadvantage: he doesn't like the bush. Or so he says.

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.
