An artist pays homage to photographic masters with recreations of their iconic portraits—with John Malkovich as a subject
Two years ago, photographer Sandro Miller wanted to pay homage to his mentor, Irving Penn, by recreating Penn’s iconic portrait of author Truman Capote.
That’s when he realized that his friend, actor John Malkovich, looked a bit like Capote. Since then, Malkovich, who has known Miller for more than 17 years, has become the subject of several iconic portraits recreated by Miller as tribute to some of the world’s most masterful photographers.
“For me, John is a beautiful, clean canvas ready for paint. He is extremely open minded, never fearful and always willing to go to places most actors of his caliber would avoid,” Miller wrote in a press release. “His willingness to play dress up, and become the subject of some of the most iconic images from history, is a true gift.”
The show, called Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters, will open at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago on Nov. 7 and run through Jan. 31. If you can’t get enough of John Malkovich, then watch out for the actor/muse’s exclusive interview with French publication 7-POST and French newspaper Liberation.
A rare look into the life of the silent guards who keep watch over the White House
Photographer Brooks Kraft, a regular contributor to TIME, has been shooting the White House for 14 years, spanning a period that includes the 2000 election controversy, the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the Iraq War, a global financial crisis and more.
Through Kraft’s work at 1600 Pennsylvania there has been the quiet force behind the camera, silent and standing sentry, that quite literally keeps life going at the White House: The Secret Service.
Founded in 1865 to squash the production of counterfeit U.S. currency, today the Secret Service bears the burden of responsibility to protect the President and other VIPs, including the President’s family, presidential candidates and visiting dignitaries.
