What is John Malkovich, if not a conduit for some of the greatest art of our time?
The film and stage actor, also known for his contribution to the pop culture cannon, appears as the face for the photographer Sandro Miller’s latest exhibition ‘Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich.’
For his part, aside from playing the part of muse, all Malkovich had to do was be John Malkovich; the rest is now revised history.

Sandro said of the collaboration: “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.”
