In 2013, TIME asked photographer Paola Kudacki to take these striking portraits of Philip Seymour Hoffman, who sadly passed away on Feb. 2 2014, as part of our Great Performances portfolio.
Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away today. What an amazing but short career. I’ll never forget his amazing work in “Capote” one of my favorite films.
Cheers Mr. Hoffman, and safe journey.
