Illustrated in Roger Scott: From the street, 2001, p109. One of only two large format photographs, printed on rolled silver gelatin paper. In November 1975, two weeks after the dismissal of Gough Whitlam, Roger Scott was photographing a Liberal Party rally at Randwick Racecourse, which was attended by about 20,000 Liberal supporters. According to Scott, Malcolm Fraser was standing up on the flatbed of a semitrailer, "whipping the crowd into a frenzy." Scott said he made his way onto the back of Fraser's flatbed and began taking photos while Fraser was shouting comments like "A vote for Labor is a vote for the communists." Scott, enraged, yelled out "Fraser, you're a f---ing dope!" The Liberal leader spun around and pointed at Scott just as he took the photograph, capturing the moment.
A smaller format (23.8 x 35.2cm) is available for $2,200
