Mostly self‐taught, Sandro learned his craft by studying books published by many of the great artists canonised in photographic history, and is now considered as one of the top advertising photographers worldwide. Sandro first met Malkovich in the late 1990s. More than 16 years later, they are still collaborating, which can be seen in their latest project, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters. In 2013, Sandro decided to do a project honouring the men and women whose photographs helped shape his career. After selecting thirty‐four images to emulate, Sandro contacted Malkovich, who instantly agreed to participate. John Malkovich demonstrates his chameleon‐like proclivity, morphing into Albert Einstein, Che Guevara, John Lennon or Andy warhol. Through his immense skill and sandro’s amazing photographic eye, this series pays respect to photographic history through the genius of a photographer and his muse.
