The product of a unique, almost 20-year artistic collaboration between two stars in their respective fields, the actor and cultural icon John Malkovich and the photographer Sandro Miller, The Malkovich Sessions represents a profound meeting of the minds. The centerpiece of this stunning book is 'Homage', a series of 32 images that recreate the iconic works of photographers whose work inspired and influenced Miller, from Edward Curtis to Diane Arbus to Irving Penn to Annie Leibovitz. Malkovich's astonishing ability to channel others combines with Miller's technical mastery to produce images that transcend and amplify the originals, while creating something new and exciting in themselves. Bracketed by Miller's brilliant portraits of Malkovich as Malkovich, along with still work from a series of short films that the two made together, The Malkovich Sessions is a marvellous record of friendship and inspiration.

"In this book, rather than on film, John Malkovich gets to be himself, in all his goofy, creepy glory. And he gets to recreate some of the world's most iconic portraits, with the help of photographer Miller, in a book that offers both pathos and whimsy." (Daily Mail, November 16th, 2016)
"He loves undressing almost as much as dressing up, as is evident from The Malkovich Sessions, a lavish new book of photographs of Malkovich taken over 17 years by American photographer Sandro Miller. In the section titled Homage, Malko poses for Miller in a series of spookily familiar iconic portraits: Malko as Dali, Malko as Marilyn, Malko as Lennon, Malko as Diane Arbus's Identical Twins. Malko, ever the chameleon. Even the portrait of Malko as Malko, dressed in a Chinese green silk suit, sees him blend into the green background." (Katie Law The London Evening Standard, May 12, 2016)
"Sandro Miller's The Malkovich Sessions (Glitterati Incorporated, $95) is an epic curio of a monograph that marks 17 years of collaboration. Miller captures Malkovich in dozens of portraits, from the classic to the candid, but the highlights are Malkovich's interpretations of iconic photographs, from Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother to Bert Stern's beloved shots of Marilyn Monroe...Miller's doorstopper offers a full-circle pop-culture moment, as we go from Being John Malkovich to John Malkovich...being everyone else." (R. Kurt Osenlund, Managing Editor Out Magazine, March 2016)
"Photographer Sandro Miller translated this common post-viewing – Being John Malkovich thought experiment into a 17-year project, which has culminated into a volume of stunning portraits. The Malkovich Sessions, published by Glitterati Incorporated, collects photographs of John Malkovich playing different characters, and documents Miller and Malkovich's journey in making them." (Alexandra Glembocki Musee Magazine, March 28, 2016)
"The level of control and the amusement provided by these images are worthy of a book in themselves, but this collection goes beyond that ... This book is well constructed... It's a journey worth sharing and revisiting. You'll find something different each time you turn a page." (Amanda Quintenz-Fiedler Photographer's Forum)

Buchbeschreibung Glitterati Inc Feb 2016, 2016. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - Over the course of 17 years, award-winning photographer Sandro Miller and inimitable actor John Malkovich combined their larger-than-life personas and talents to produce a series of portraits and films, most notably those that reconstruct the most iconic images in photographic history, in their Homage series. Others in the collection here capture the genius and range of Malkovich's acting ability in distinctive portraits as well as in film works. For lovers of the arts, photography, and John Malkovich, this book is indispensable.The first section of the book, Portraits, includes Malkovich in a variety of costumes and characters, ranging from playful to serious; while the second section, Homage, is devoted to recreating some of the most iconic portraits of all time: the artworks that originally inspired Sandro to become a photographer. Here are representations of the likes of Annie Leibowitz's image of Yoko Ono and John Lennon; Bert Stern's photographs of Marilyn Monroe, and Dorothea Lange's 'Migrant Mother.' At first glance, it is difficult to tell that the subject in the photograph is in fact Malkovich, emphasising the unique nature of Malkovich's formidable acting ability and Sandro's talent for perfectly creating the lighting, environment and demeanour of the original photographs. Finally, the third section of the book, Motion, contains photographs from experimental films created by the artists in tandem. As one of pop culture's most cultish personalities, Malkovich's fluid ability as an actor perfectly complements Sandro's talents as a photographer and director. 268 pp. Englisch.
