New Exhibition Featuring Archive of James Bond Images

Scottish actor Sean Connery as James Bond plays golf on a deserted film set in Pinewood Studios in London during the filming of 'Diamonds Are Forever', 1971.

Fans of the world’s most famous secret agent, need to head to London’s Box Galleries next month for a new exhibition of James Bond images.

The new show, Shaken, Not Stirred, celebrates the past, present and future of the James Bond franchise’s influence on 20th and 21st-century art. It includes a curation of photographs, illustrations, screen prints and silkscreen paintings by some of the most iconic artists of our time.

The blockbuster exhibition will be an immersive Bond experience comprising a series of new and archival works from Terry O’Neill, Simon Claridge, Douglas Kirkland, Helmut Newton, Russell Young, Russell Marshall and Michael Turner.

The late O’Neill has a long-standing association with James Bond images, capturing the glamorous, roguish photographs of every James Bond actor, from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig. We spoke to Terry a couple of years ago and here’s what he had to say on 007,

“I think every generation; every decade has a Bond that defines that era. I had a lot of fun on those sets – can’t think of how many Bond films I was involved with, but a lot of them!”

The archive photographs are flanked by never-before-seen commentary from O’Neill, alongside a series of original essays on the world of James Bond by BAFTA-longlisted film writer, James Clarke. The volume also features exclusive interviews with a number of actors featured in O’Neill’s photographs over his star-studded career.

Shaken, Not Stirred at Box Galleries runs from 13th February – 24th March
