In exclusive collaboration with Lionsgate, Assouline is proud to release Tim Palen: Photographs from The Hunger Games. In this luxurious large-format volume, Tim Palen’s evocative and powerful photographs of the cast from the enormously successful series The Hunger Games come to life as never seen before.
Palen is widely recognized as an industry pioneer in creating innovative marketing campaigns and his work for The Hunger Games has helped catapult the films to the top of the market. His unique relationship with each of the actors over the course of the filming of the series allowed him to capture each of them with striking intimacy and to transform the high-octane adventure of the films into exquisite visual art. Thirty-three exclusive portraits from Mockingjay – Part II, the final film of The Hunger Games, provide a moving conclusion to Palen’s cycle of photographs.
This limited-edition hand-bound Ultimate Collection volume, signed by Tim Palen, includes a limited-edition art print and is presented in a soft-touch clamshell case.
Complimentary white gloves and signature canvas tote bag are included with each purchase from Assouline's Ultimate Collection
