Portrait photographer Sandro Miller wanted to pay homage to the great photographers before him whose work inspired him and helped shape his career. After selecting the images he wanted to emulate, Sandro contacted John Malkovich who instantly agreed to participate. In April of 2014, Sandro and Malkovich spent 3 days recreating the iconic images resulting in an incredibly well done series.
