Meet World-Famous Stars John Malkovich and Sandro Miller

17 February 2023

The Minister of Tourism Dr. Ilin Dimitrov met with world-famous artists John Malkovich and photographer Sandro Miller during the opening of their joint exhibition at the Square 500 Gallery. He invited them to come back to Bulgaria and made a gesture — a reference to the ancient history and rich culture of our lands, which attract so many tourists from all over the world.

Minister Dimitrov surprised John Malkovich by giving a present to the world-famous Hollywood actor — a replica of part of the world's oldest worked gold — the Varna Treasure, which marked half a century since its discovery. Minister Dimitrov wished John Malkovich his third visit to Bulgaria to be by the sea. The actor has already shot a film in Bulgaria years ago, and his current participation in the performances of the play 'In the Solitude of Cotton Fields' at the National Theatre caused real excitement and huge public interest.

'Every visit of a star of this calibre helps Bulgaria's popularity,' the Minister of Tourism stressed.

Today, however, John Malkovich played the starring role in an unusual exhibition by Sandro Miller, who in 2014 was honoured for his achievements with the title of International Photographer of the Year. American photographer Sandro Miller and Hollywood actor John Malkovich recreate the most iconic images in the 20th and 21st-century photography in their joint project, 'Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: A Tribute to the Masters of Photography'. The exhibition includes 61 colour and black-and-white photographs in which John Malkovich impersonates celebrities.
