I’ve enjoyed John Malkovich on the big screen for years, but recently he’s taken his acting talents to a different medium—photography. Photographer Sandro Miller created Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to photographic masters, featuring the talented actor in a number of famous photos.
In 2013, Sandro decided to do a project honoring the men and women whose photographs helped shape his career. After selecting thirty-five images to emulate, Sandro contacted Malkovich, who instantly agreed to participate. When speaking about Malkovich, Sandro states: “John is the most brilliant, prolific person I know. His genius is unparalleled. I can suggest a mood or an idea and within moments, he literally morphs into the character right in front of my eyes. He is so trusting of my work and our process… I’m truly blessed to have him as my friend and collaborator.”
Here are a few of my favorites from the collection:
Dorothea Lange / Migrant Mother, Nipomo, California (1936), 2014
Yousuf Karsh / Ernest Hemingway (1957), 2014
Herb Ritts / Jack Nicholson, London (1988) (B), 2014
Philippe Halsman / Salvador Dalí (1954), 2014
