Female nudes have been photographed countless times by an army of photographers since the mid-nineteenth century. There have been some great pictures along with a growing pile of trite and questionable garbage. I did not want to repeat works by other photographers familiar to me so I decided to look at the body as a landscape and selected camera position and light accordingly.

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.
