Leica Gallery Sydney is holding an official opening of its exhibition: No Time to Die – Behind the Scenes, an exclusive photography exhibition featuring behind-the-scenes photos shot on Leica cameras.
Captured during filming of the new Bond movie, the photographs were taken by long-time producer Michael G. Wilson, James Bond actor Daniel Craig, and renowned photographers Nicola Dove and Greg Williams.
The exhibition presents an edit of 25 images curated by Michael G. Wilson, with the photographs captured on Leica M and Leica Q systems.
Filmgoers have been enthralled by Daniel Craig’s fifth and final portrayal of James Bond.
No Time to Die’s plot pulls together many of the strands of Bond’s fictional life. Kicking off with Bond living in quiet retirement from the spy game in the balmy Caribbean before he meets up with his old friend CIA agent Felix Leiter who somehow draws him back into the shadowy world of international crime and espionage to investigate the disappearance of a scientist.
Once again, we meet supervillain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, introduced in Spectre, but now detained at Her Majesty’s pleasure by MI6.
Californian-born director Cary Joji Fukanaga, tantalisingly says Blofeld, played by Christoph Waltz, provides much of the film’s evil genius. And the love interest is a woman called Madeleine Swann, played by French actress Léa Seydoux (real name, Léa Hélène Seydoux-Fornier de Clausonne).
