TIME has recruited fashion photographer Paola Kudacki to highlight this year’s great performers, taking a handful of 2013 Oscar nominees and allowing them to recreate themselves through a series of black and white photographs. The results are stunning. Hugh Jackman and Les Misérables co-star Anne Hathaway were paired up for their portrait, featuring the two modernizing their characters from the film, Valjean and Fantine. There’s also a great video of them discussing their roles (including preliminary research) and what they think of their fellow actor nominees, along with a group video.
