The British artist duo Anderson & Low has created a highly original art project based on the brilliant artifice of the spectacular sets from the James Bond movie SPECTRE. The result was shown in an exhibition at Camera Work in Berlin from 25 June - 27 August 2016, and in the book Anderson & Low: On the Set of James Bond's SPECTRE.

Anderson & Low have shot their magnificent photos entirely on the sets at Pinewood Studios, UK. Sets include the hotel room in Morocco, Oberhauser's Morocco headquarters, the Old MI6 Building, Palazzo in Rome. There are lots of detail photos from Q's workshop. Very impressive are the photos of the crashed Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin N2 helicopter on the massive Westminster Bridge set.

Different from the Blood, Sweat and Bond: Behind the Scenes of SPECTRE book, Anderson & Low don't show any of the actors or people working on the film in their book, but purely focus on the sets.

There are however photos taken by Anderson & Low of some of the crew including director Sam Mendes, composer Thomas Newman, special effects designer Chris Corbould, writers Purvis and Wade, costume designer Jany Temime, DOP Hoyte Van Hoytema, producers Michael and Gregg Wilson. Those photos can exclusively be seen on the National Portrait Gallery website.

Anderson & Low: On the Set of James Bond's SPECTRE opens with a foreword by SkyFall and SPECTRE director Sam Mendes, and an introduction by Scott Bukatman, cultural theorist and Professor of Film and Media Studies at Standford University. The hardcover book was published by German publisher Hatje Cantz in 2016, has 64 pages, 37 images, and measures 32.60 x 25.70 cm (12.8" x 10.1").

Available on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de and the official 007 Store.
