Art Streiber photographs a host of stars—including Tom Hanks, Amy Adams, Viola Davis, and Matthew McConaughey—for Variety’s “Actors on Actors” cover story

“Over two days, we shot 26 single portraits on each set and 13 duets on two sets. I think,” says Art Streiber of photographing Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” cover story. “Definitely lost track. Six of those 26 actors were Academy Award winners. The other 20 were either magnificent, amazing, or tremendous.”

For the latest issue of Variety magazine and it’s Actors on Actors portfolio, one of three set ups on one (not that big) cyc at the oldest sound stage in Hollywood, the Mack Sennet Studios. We were limited by space constraints, so we had to stage and light a white, a black and a grey set up, one on top of the other. Over 2 days we shot 26 single portraits on each set and 13 duets on two sets. I think. Definitely lost track. Six of those 26 actors were Academy Award winners. The other 20 were either magnificent, amazing or tremendous. The light? One large Photek umbrella on this grey set. The folding table? Just arrived from Amazon.com. The crew? Thank god for @johnnytalay at the computer, @hoooooov and @jamesbianchi on the lights, @luvlouella and @kristineilson on production. @variety #actorsonactors @hasselblad_official @nicole.kidmanofficial #nicolekidman
