Photographer Sandro Miller has worked with actor John Malkovich many times in the past. This time he chose Mr. Malkovich to help him pay tribute to the most iconic images of our century. A photo series called “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to photographic masters”.
Naturally, as expected, the series puts both Miller’s exceptional photography as well as Malkovich’s masterful acting talents front and center. Yes, Photoshop is not always necessary to achieve the impossible.
