Backstage “No Time to Die” exhibition just opened in Sydney
Although No time to die marked the end of Daniel Craig’s 15-year tenure as James Bond, Sydneysiders will now be able to see his time as the 007 immortalized by a set of Leica cameras in a new exhibit. A series of exclusive photos taken behind the scenes of the production of the latest film debuted at the Leica Gallery in Sydney on November 12.
The photographs were taken by longtime producer Michael G. Wilson, renowned photographers Nicola Dove and Greg Williams, as well as Daniel Craig himself. Organized by Wilson, the exhibit features an edition of 25 photographs in total, all of which were captured on the Leica M and Leica Q systems.
Similar exhibitions have been presented in Tokyo, Osaka, Vienna, Frankfurt, Los Angeles, Singapore, China, Seoul and Salzburg.
The exhibition launched the day after the film’s Australian release, capitalizing on the sentimentality currently in the air towards Craig’s embodiment of Bond. No time to die – Behind the scenes is in fact the first exhibition to be shown in the newly renovated and expanded Leica Gallery and Store Sydney in the Queen Victoria Building and will run until January 10, 2022.
