Sandro Miller, Gregory Scott, and Francesco Pergolesi each uniquely pay homage to the great minds and people that inspire them, from world renowned artists to Italian shopkeepers.
Richard Avedon / Ronald Fischer, Beekeeper, Davis, California, May 9 (1981), 2014
Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters honors photographs that have impacted Sandro. Pieces include Irving Penn’s photograph of Truman Capote in a corner; Phillippe Halsman’s portrait of Salvador Dalí; Dorothea Lange’s image of a migrant mother; Diane Arbus’ classic photo of identical twins; Richard Avedon’s beekeeper, among others.
Gregory Scott creates narrative pieces that reference specific artists (Vincent Van Gogh, Damien Hirst, Mark Rothko ) that have had an impact on his life. Using illusion and surprise, he challenges the definitions placed on photography, painting and video, expanding its discourse and creating a dialogue with the viewer.

Francesco Pergolesi sees himself as a guardian of a vanishing world where people congregated to talk about families and daily activities. Pergolesi’s body of work, Heroes, is devoted to this disappearing landscape. A typical piece begins when the artist meets a person, or sees a shop, that evokes a memory. Working together, Pergolesi and his subject create a story that honors the past while preserving the present.
These works can be seen in our Photo London booth B3, along with many others. You can purchase tickets to the fair here.
