For many years I've wanted to photograph the nude female form, but I never had until about a year ago and I started taking some nude pictures which I found quite fascinating in the possibilities that you have available to you. I never realized up until that time that the nude form is so infinite in its possibilities. His underwater photographs were made at Maitland Bay on the Central Coast.

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.
