Photographing John Malkovich
Advertising photographer Sandro Miller (American Express, Coca-Cola, BMW) knows his way around flawless lighting and a meticulous set. In tribute to photographic greats, Miller enlisted friend and collaborator John Malkovich to recreate some of the world’s most famous images.
Recreations include Annie Leibovitz’s iconic image of a naked John Lennon wrapped around Yoko Ono (1980), Victor Skrebneski’s smoking Bette Davis (1971), Bert Stern’s Marilyn Monroe with flowers (1962), Pierre et Gilles’ Jean Paul Gaultier in a marinière (1990), Irving Penn’s Truman Capote in a corner (1948), Robert Mapplethorpe’s self-portrait with a gun (1982), and Richard Avedon’s beekeeper (1981).
