A self-titled practice, “Resemblage” (resemble and collage), humorously and disturbingly explores the dark side of American pop culture and politics, questions humanity, notions of “the self” and modern day narcissism with the rise of social platforms.

All About Photo Awards 2021 - The Mind's Eye

 Our 6th edition of the All About Photo Awards invites photographers from around the world to submit their best work for consideration. In reference to Henri Cartier-Bresson's photo essay, The Mind's Eye investigates the depth and thoughts behind each image.

"To take photographs means to recognize - simultaneously and within a fraction of a second - both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one's head, one's eye and one's heart on the same axis".
Henri Cartier-Bresson

Winners will receive $10,000 in cash awards, extensive press coverage and global recognition.
The grand prize is $5,000, the 2nd prize is $2,000, the 3rd prize is $1,500, the 4th prize is $1,000 and the 5th prize is $500!

Belgium: Sandro Miller: Malkovitch, Malkovitch, Malkovitch! Homage to Photographic Masters

 Gallery FIFTY ONE and FIFTY ONE TOO are proud to present the remarkable portrait series ‘Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich! Homage to Photographic Masters’, by the American photographer Sandro Miller (°1985) with the American actor John Malkovich in the leading role.

For this project, Miller went back to the iconic images that have always inspired and moved him in his career as a photographer and recreated these memorable classics with his close friend and muse John Malkovich as his model. By getting into the skin of the master photographers who created these images, Miller tried to understand what makes these shots so captivating and how they changed the art of portraiture in photography.

Under Miller’s close direction, Malkovich masterly transformed himself into a diverse set of characters, ranging from John Lennon to Marilyn Monroe and Picasso to Dorothea Lange’s iconic ‘Migrant Mother’. Regardless the age or gender of the original model, Malkovich was able to mentally go to that specific time and place and convincingly become that person.
