A celebration of the talented and much loved cinematographer (director of photograpy) Hoyte van Hoytema who lives in Stockholm since many years. SPECTRE was Hoyte van Hoytema's first James Bond film.

"Dear Hoyte, happy birthday and keep up the great work."

About Hoyte van Hoytema:
Hoyte van Hoytema (born 1971) is an award-winning cinematographer. A native of The Netherlands, he began his career studying at the esteemed Polish National Film School in Lodz before going on to shoot several films, commercials, documentaries and TV series in Sweden, Norway, Germany and the United Kingdom.

In 2006, Hoyte founded Furious People with his Swedish wife Mia.

In 2008, Hoyte’s cinematography for Swedish director Tomas Alfredson’s critically-acclaimed masterpiece Let the Right One In earned him several awards and the attention of world-renowned filmmakers. David O. Russell hired Hoyte to shoot his 2010 film The Fighter starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale. The following year, he re-teamed with Alfredson on Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2010) for which both the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) and BAFTA nominated Hoyte for Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography. Hoyte then shot Spike Jonze’s futuristic love story Her in 2013. Christopher Nolan next brought Hoyte on to film Interstellar, which brought him another BAFTA nomination.

After SPECTRE, Hoyte worked on the short Kenzo World (2016) and is currently working on Dunkirk (2017) which marks his second collaboration with director Christopher Nolan.
