You think the above photo is Andy Warhol? You’d better think again! Although at first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking that. For his latest project renowned photographer, Sandro Miller, has collaborated with acclaimed actor, John Malkovich, to recreate famous photographs from history, this time with the added twist of having John Malkovich as the subject – as you do. We have to say, it strangely works!

The aptly named project, “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich”, was conceived as an homage to the photographers and famous images that have inspired Miller throughout his career. As both Miller’s friend and as someone who has the tendency to take part in projects that can be described as somewhat out there, of course Malkovich was the perfect choice of model.

About Malkovich, Miller said:

“John is the most brilliant, prolific person I know. His genius is unparalleled. I can suggest a mood or an idea and within moments, he literally morphs into the character right in front of my eyes. He is so trusting of my work and our process… I’m truly blessed to have him as my friend and collaborator.”
