There’s a scene in Die Another Day where James Bond fights the villain the old-fashioned way: in a fencing duel. It involves all of the usual elements of the James Bond formula – a girl, a diamond, equal parts action and suspense, and the ultimate triumph of good over evil. That scene inspired Akin Abayomi to create Spy Game, a shoot he both styled and photographed.
Presented in black and white to emphasise the fact that the line between good and evil is as fine and flexible as a fencing foil, Abayomi’s shoot merges the fencing theme with sexy Bond girl styling. In other shots the military cap layered over with a diamond-encrusted mask take their inspirations from another of the film’s villains, Zao, played by Rick Yune.
