Artist recreates iconic photos using John Malkovich as model
By ZACHARY GOLDSTEIN
American portrait photographer Sandro Miller (professionally known as 'Sandro) is already renowned for his collaborative work with Oscar-nominated actor John Malkovich, and his newest gallery with the actor may be the tandem's best work yet.
Inspired by some of the most famous portraits from the 20th century, Sandro uses Malkovich's remarkable acting talents to flawlessly recreate images such as 'Migrant Mother,' 'Marilyn in Pink' and Mick Jagger's 'Fur Hood.'
In a statement to AOL.com, Sandro said, 'For me, John is a beautiful, clean canvas ready for paint. He is extremely open minded, never fearful and always willing to go to places most actors of his caliber would avoid.' Sandro continued adding, 'His willingness to play dress up, and become the subject of some of the most iconic images from history, is a true gift.'
The show, titled 'Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters,' will open at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago on Nov. 7 and run through Jan. 31.
