John Malkovich Malkoviches Us All With Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters
It’s hard to imagine how much more creative John Malkovich could have been with his last name. After his collaboration with Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman for Being John Malkovich in 1999, that gave birth to the unforgettable ‘Malkovich Malkovich‘ scene, the American actor is back, this time through a collaboration with photographer Sandro Miller in Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: an Homage to Photographic Masters that will run from November 7 to January 31, 2015 at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago.
As you can see from the series of pictures, Malkovich didn’t shy away from interpreting any character that inspired Miller. Here is a bit more about the artistic experiment:
In 2013, Sandro decided to do a project honoring the men and women whose photographs helped shape his career. After selecting thirty-five images to emulate, Sandro contacted Malkovich, who instantly agreed to participate. When speaking about Malkovich, Sandro states: “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.”
