John Malkovich is a good friend and collaborator. An incredibly versatile actor, the dynamics of Malkovich’s range is as vast as he is open minded when considering a role. For Sandro Miller, this meant a willing participant for his latest project, paying tribute to those who inspired him most.
At the age of sixteen, upon seeing the work of Irving Penn, Sandro Miller knew he wanted to become a photographer. Mostly self-taught, Sandro relied on books published by many of the great artists canonized in photographic history. Through their pictures, he learned the art of composition, lighting and portraiture. More than 30 years later, with clients ranging from Forbes, GQ and Esquire, to American Express, Coca-Cola and BMW, Sandro has secured his place as one of the top advertising photographers worldwide.
His success in the commercial world allows him to continue his personal projects, which has included working in Cuba, photographing American blues musicians, various dance troupes, and extended endeavors with John Malkovich, his long time friend and collaborator. Sandro first met Malkovich in the late 1990s, while working on a job for Steppenwolf Theater. More than 16 years later, Sandro and John are still collaborating, which can be seen in their latest project, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters.
If you live in Chicago or planning on going there during the holiday season, take some time to check out Miller’s unique tribute. The exhibit will officially come to a close January 31st.
