This image is a screenshot of a movie. Connect the movie to a book written by the man in the pic below (who recently made an appearance in a quiz at the QC meet).

The Screenshot is that of Before Sunrise. The other picture is that of James Joyce.

The film Before Sunrise is set on June 16, 1994, which is exactly 90 years after the original Bloomsday. There are some other obvious references to the book throughout the movie.

Bloomsday is a commemoration observed annually on 16 June in Dublin and elsewhere to celebrate the life of Irish writer James Joyce and relive the events in his novel Ulysses, all of which took place on the same day in Dublin in 1904.
