Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jonze's brilliantly bizarre and twisted dark comedy, Being John Malkovich, gave us a brief glimpse of what a world populated purely with John Malkovichs would look like. The result was a macabre place in which it would have been very hard to make a living as a hairdresser.

It seems likely that photographer and artist Sandro Miller has used this famous scene to inspire a new project which sees John Malkovich implanted into various iconic photographs and paintings. Take a look at his work below:

The project between Malkovich and Sandro - who previously collaborated with each other on the 2011 short film, Butterflies - took over three days to shoot this series of photos back in April, 2014. It is due to be shown publicly at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago in November 2014.
