An exhibition of 61 colour and black-and-white photographs of John Malkovich recreating the most iconic photographic images of the 20th and 21st century will be unveiled today at the National Gallery in Sofia.

Author of the project is American photographer Sandro Miller. In 2013, Sandro Miller decided to do a project honouring the men and women whose photographs helped shape his career, selecting 35 of their images to emulate. Sandro Miller contacted John Malkovich, who instantly agreed to participate.

In this project  the Hollywood star demonstrates his chameleon-like proclivity, morphing into Albert Einstein, Che Guevara, John Lennon and Andy Warhol.

Alberto Korda - Che Guevara (1960), 2014 and Arthur Sasse -  Albert Einstein with his tongue out (1951), 2014
The presentation by photographer Sandro Miller is scheduled for Saturday, 18 February from 11 AM until 12.30 at the Kvadrat 500 (Square 500) National Gallery in Sofia. 

The exhibition will be on until 30 April 2023.

John Malkovich is currently in Sofia to star in In the Solitude of Cotton Fields on 16,17 and 18 February at the Ivan Vazov National Theatre.
