The exhibition - curated by Anne Morin - produced and organized by Skira, in collaboration with Fondazione Stelline and diChroma Photography di Madrid - present the remarkable portrait series ‘Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich! Homage to Photographic Masters’ by the American photographer Sandro Miller (Elgin, Illinois,1958), with his close friend and muse, the American actor John Malkovich as his model.
The project, which began in 2013, features 60 images that pay homage to the photography luminaries who have influenced Sandro’s own notable career including Irving Penn, August Sander, Man Ray, Dorothea Lange, Robert Mapplethorpe, Annie Liebovitz, Richard Avedon and Robert Mapplethorpe.
Under Miller’s close direction, Malkovich masterly transformed himself into a diverse set of characters, ranging from Marilyn Monroe to Salvador Dalí, Mick Jagger, Muhammad Alì, Meryl Streep, John Lennon e Yoko Ono, Andy Warhol, Albert Einstein, Ernest Hemingway, and more.
Next to Malkovich’s brilliant chameleon-like performance, the strength of this series lies in the amount of effort that Miller put into fully understanding the image he wanted to recreate both on a technical and emotional level.
