In exclusive collaboration with Lionsgate, Assouline presents Tim Palen’s evocative and powerful photographs of the cast from the enormously successful series The Hunger Games. 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.
Compiled in one deluxe volume, Palen’s portraits, many of which have never been seen before, give fans access to their favorite characters as they have never encountered them. Through Palen’s unique lens, characters become icons in Tim Palen: Photographs from The Hunger Games, and will forever be immortalized as the beloved characters the world has embraced.
Tim Palen, chief brand officer and president of worldwide marketing at Lionsgate, is an award-winning fine-art photographer whose work encompasses editorial, advertising, fashion, portraiture, and video portraiture. He was named an AdWeek 2012 Brand Genius for his work on the global blockbuster The Hunger Games. Palen has also been recognized in Fast Company’s “100 Most Creative People in Business” and Entertainment Weekly’s “50 Smartest People in Hollywood.”

- About Assouline Publishing:
Since its beginnings in 1994, Assouline has been dedicated to creating books that are as informational as they are beautiful works of art. The respect for the product and the process of creation is evident in every facet – the traditional technique of hand-binding covers, the imagery that transports the reader to another place and time, the luxurious thickness of each page. The passion and the attention to detail are like that of an haute couture atelier.
Known worldwide for bringing luxury to the publishing industry, Assouline produces one-of-a-kind books on fashion, art, architecture, photography, design, and travel, weaving a story of L’Art de Vivre with every publication. The Ultimate Collection is the epitome of the Assouline brand as it offers an unparalleled standard of excellence in the 21st century. Each book from the collection pays homage to the time-honored craft of bookbinding and pictures are individually hand-tipped, a process which requires cutting, gluing, and placing each photo onto the page. This level of craftsmanship yields the highest quality books in the world, truly pieces of art in their own right.
