From the thirtieth level of a 54th Street hotel room, I photographed the facades of buildings that house some of the largest and most powerful American corporations. Marching down the Avenue, the office towers form rectilinear patterns similar to a painting by Brigit Riley, concealing the fact that people work behind the curtain walls in cluttered offices.

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.
