Marilyn in Pink Roses by Bert Stem

The photographer Sandro Miller contacted the famous actor John Malkovich to pitch his novel premise for a project: Miller would duplicate iconic photographic portraits using Malkovich as the subject. Malkovich would have to dress up a bit, wear makeup, or even be naked. He would become Andy Warhol, Albert Einstein, John Lennon, and other people captured for posterity by the world's greatest photographers.

The results of their collaboration form the exhibit Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters. This exhibit at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago will be open from November 7 to January 31.
