Leica store Sydney launches Bond exhibition
Leica Gallery Sydney has launched a new exhibition: No Time to Die – Behind the Scenes, a photography exhibition featuring behind-the-scenes photos shot on (surprise, surprise), 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 photographers Nicola Dove and Greg Williams. The exhibition presents an edit of 25 images curated by Wilson.
The exhibition isn't the first collaboration with Leica and 007. In September 2021, Leica released a new Leica Q2 “007 Edition” to celebrate the release of the 25th Bond film. This special edition Leica Q2 features the iconic 007 logo on the deck cap and the famous Bond gun barrel design on the lens cap, comes with a leather case and will set you back an eye-watering $11,900.
In the latest film, Leica worked with the 007 production team to display Leica cameras on the sets of James Bond’s Jamaican home, and 'fittingly', the Leica Q2 in Q’s home in London.
A blog penned by James Bond producer, Michael G. Wilson, regarding the No Time to Die – Behind the Scenes exhibition, can be found here. The free exhibition runs until January.
