About Sandro Miller

Sandro Miller explores the limits of portraiture in both commercial and fine art photography. Typically working under the simplified “Sandro,” the photographer maintains supreme focus on the body, revealing his subject’s interiority through posture and expression. His evocation of emotion is even more potent in his solo works, as faces and bodies dominate his compositions, leaving little room for distraction from the people he captures. Sandro’s most prolific muse and model is undoubtedly John Malkovich. The pair most famously collaborated in a project called Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich, in which Sandro recreated some of the most famous images in photographic history with Malkovich as the main subject. From Dorothea Lange, to Irving Penn, to Andy Warhol, Sandro pays tribute to his idols with his adaptations of their most prominent works.
