Artist Talk with Sandro Miller about "Malkovich:Homage to photographic masters"
In an attempt to understand why artists create the work they make, Catherine Edelman Gallery decided to launch Artist Talk in September of 2008, a video series which allows the viewer to hear, from the artist, the reasons behind making each piece on exhibit.
In 2002, Catherine Edelman Gallery produced What Were You Thinking, a 15 year catalog which asked artists to write a statement explaining the thought process behind making a specific photograph. Artist Talk continues our commitment to understanding the creative process through the words of the photographer.
At the age of sixteen, upon seeing the work of Irving Penn, Sandro Miller knew he wanted to become a photographer. Mostly self-taught, Sandro relied on books published by many of the great artists canonized in photographic history. Through their pictures, he learned the art of composition, lighting and portraiture. More than 30 years later, with clients ranging from Forbes, GQ and Esquire, to American Express, Coca-Cola and BMW, Sandro has secured his place as one of the top advertising photographers worldwide.
