Sandro Miller


John Malkovich and Sandro Miller pay homage to the icons of photography that have changed our collective imagination.

Meryl Streep is a myth, even without the celebrated portrait taken by Annie Leibovitz in 1981, and another myth – John Malkovich – pays homage to her talent with Sandro Miller in a project designed to bring to life the works of master photographers that have changed our collective imagination.

In this original project, Sandro Miller uses the celebrated actor to recreate some of the most famous portraits of all time. This book is a sort of magic formula with no need for Photoshop, relying simply on the actor’s chameleon-like talent to open the doors of our imagination. Thanks to meticulous make-up sessions, costumes and sets, coming after months of research, Malkovich becomes Albert Einstein sticking his tongue out at Arthur Sasse (1951), Che Guevara as captured by Alberto Korda (1960), Jack Nicholson behind the mask of the Joker by Herb Ritts (1988). Malkovich also represents Robert Mapplethorpe’s transgressive Self and animates Andres Serrano’s plastic crucifix (1987) and Andy Warhol’s pop art. With a fur wrapped around his head, Malkovich becomes Mick Jagger as depicted by David Bailey (1964) and even transforms into Richard Avedon’s famous Beekeeper.
