With the premiere of the final installment of The Hunger Games films, Mockingjay Part – 2, right around the corner, Jennifer Lawrence has put on Katniss’ battle gear for a final time while shooting art for the film – and PEOPLE has an exclusive look at the first photo.

“Jen said to me ‘You know, this is probably the last time I’ll ever wear this costume,'” says photographer Tim Palen, who is also the chief brand officer and president of worldwide marketing for Lionsgate studio. “Somehow her saying it made it poignantly more real.”

To mark the end of the Hunger Games saga, Palen added new photos from Mockingjay 2 to his book, Tim Palen: Photographs from The Hunger Games – The Ultimate Collection, which will be rereleased on November 20, the same day the film hits theaters .

“It’s highly stylized,” Palen said of the photographs included in the book. “We consciously wanted the campaign for Mockingjay Part – 2 to be dramatically different than Mockingjay Part – 1. If the shorthand for [the first film] was ‘it s always darkest before the dawn,’ than [the second film] is ‘dawn has arrived in her full and spectacular glory.’ ”
