In 2013, photographer Sandro Miller decided to do a project honoring the men and women whose photographs helped shape his career. A unique collaboration with John Malkovich has helped to realize that vision.
In an exhibition entitled “Malkovich Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters” the renowned actor assumes the role of a different iconic photographic subjects, from John Lennon to Albert Einstein to Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother.
Organizers of the exhibition have stated that Malkovich and Miller created the portraits over six 15-hour days in the photographer’s Chicago studio.
The photographs are current on display at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago until Jan. 31, but will be coming to Los Angeles next month.
“Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich” is scheduled to run Feb. 12 to March 21 at the Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles. You can check out a full gallery of the images here.
