“Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters”
The Mac-Gryder Gallery in New Orleans is pleased to present photographer Sandro Miller’s groundbreaking collaboration, “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters.” The exhibition opens to the public beginning with an artist’s reception on Saturday, October 5, 2019 (6-9pm) as part of the citywide annual Art for Art’s Sake event.
For the first time in North America, the complete project will open as an entire show, comprising more than 60 photographs taken over two sessions in 2014 and 2017. Photographer Sandro Miller will be present for the opening.
For this project, Miller and his team painstakingly researched and prepared recreations of 62 iconic photographs that he says influenced him deeply as a photographer.
“This is a project that in hindsight was just insane to take on,” says Miller. “We did 41 shots in six 14-hour days in 2014. Then, in August of 2017, we shot another 21 in three days for a total of 62 to complete the homage series. We all knew, including John, that if we didn’t conquer every single shot to complete perfection, we could become the laughingstock of this very brutal industry.”
