Photographer Sandro Miller recently released a new photo series ‘Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters’.

“I decided it would be a wonderful idea to pay homage to all the photographers 
that have influenced me over my 40 year career,” says Miller. 

“Eighteen months ago I flew to France to see John, armed with a package of 30 
iconic images by 28 master photographers, and to tell him about my idea fora new project. After consuming two bottles of wine with John, I showed him my idea and he fell in love.”

“My biggest fear was that people wouldn’t take this project seriously. I didn’t want these to be a parody. I was serious about paying homage to these 
photographers and photographs that changed my perspective on photography. These images inspired me throughout my career and developed me into the photographer I am today,” says Miller.
