Remember when the Origins of Lights sunglasses were sold out all over, and I managed to finally hunt them down? Now Oki-Ni has the Chronicles of Never sunglasses in the tortoiseshell frames that were pretty hard to locate before, plus an excellent pair of boots from Boris Bidjan to add to the mix. Neither are cheap, but both I covet immensely. Quality is king; you’ll have to be ready to pay for it.

Whether behind the lens or in front of a screen, Greg Williams has always loved film. On assignment from London’s Sunday Times Magazine in 1997, the British photographer began what he’s become best known for: behind-the-scenes and on-set cinema photography. In 2001, he published “Greg Williams On Set,” a look at the underpinnings of the British film industry and he has since been tasked as a “special photographer” on the sets of more than 120 films including “King Kong,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and “Atonement.”
His experience on the “Bourne Ultimatum” shoot likely lent Williams the spy-credentials necessary to be booked to stalk the set of both of the recent Daniel Craig-led Bond epics “Casino Royale” and last year’s “Quantum of Solace.”
Williams’ black-and-white images of Craig are revealing and often cheeky, showing a chiseled and tuxedoed agent being measured and manhandled by grips and lighting techs, training for fight sequences or goofing between shoots.
Craig’s sly smirk provides wonderful contrast to Williams’ stark and masterfully composed photos– and the shots of Bond girl Olga Kurylenko are appropriately gorgeous. [via iconology]
