Lionsgate CMO Tim Palen’s upcoming book celebrating his work on The Hunger Games, titled Tim Palen: Photographs from The Hunger Games, releases next week. It includes never-before seen pictures and stills from the movies, including an exclusive look at Mockingjay: Part 2.
The photographer was only set to shoot Jennifer Lawrence on the set of Mockingjay – Part 1 in Atlanta, but when he found out that Shields was filming that day, Palen felt he needed to get a shot of them together. “In Suzanne Collins’s books, their relationship is really the heartbeat of the book series and movies,” he said. “It really tracks back to this reluctant hero who makes the biggest sacrifice for her sister. It was prophetic that we would happen to get them together on the day Jennifer Lawrence became the Mockingjay.”
After shooting ad campaigns for all four films, Palen has collected the portraits into a new book,Tim Palen: Photographs From the Hunger Games, out July 29 from Assouline. And if you really can’t get enough of Palen’s work, Assouline is releasing a smaller, specially bound edition that they hope to have out in time for Mockingjay – Part 2’s release on Nov. 20.
New images from the book have hit the web. From Gale, Effie, Cinna, Katniss to shots of the book itself, check out all the images in the gallery here.
