Publisher's description

Hollywood legend John Malkovich may seem like an unlikely choice for an artist’s muse, but American photographer Sandro Miller declares him “a photographer’s dream.” Miller (born 1958) has been finding inspiration in the Academy Award-nominated actor since the two first met in 1999. In their latest collaboration, Miller pays homage to the great photographers of past and present, with Malkovich as his sole model, in their recreations of 41 iconic portraits. The project is a testament to both Miller’s skill as a photographer and Malkovich’s chameleon-esque acting ability.

With months of research in addition to accurate costumes and makeup application, Miller’s recreations are delightfully exact in their lighting and editing, while Malkovich seems to easily inhabit the original subjects no matter who he is meant to portray. He appears as the titular migrant mother in Dorothea Lange’s Depression-era portrait, as a bewigged Andy Warhol cast in crimson and as both sisters in Diane Arbus’ infamous Identical Twins, Roselle, New Jersey, matching with himself in a wide-collared dress and lace stockings. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Miller manages to breathe new life into some of the world’s most recognizable images in this playful take on the history of photography's intersection with pop culture.
