Hardcover book, published by Assouline in 2013, written by Jim Nelson, focusing on stunning images from the magazine's extensive archives of cover men who captured the essence of the 'GQ' male— smart, stylish, sophisticated and savvy.
For decades, around the world, it has been said of certain men, “He’s so GQ.” The magazine has become synonymous with style, but to “be GQ” is so much more than just being outwardly fashionable. It also means to be cultured, to have taste, to have panoramic interests, from politics, art, and literature to film, music, travel, and of course fashion. It’s about being a part of the cultural moment— actively engaging in the here and now with curiosity and an appetite for what’s new.
Mining the magazine’s extensive photographic archives, GQ Men captures the essence of what it means to “Look Sharp / Live Smart” —the magazine’s mantra—by showcasing the men who embody the GQ spirit: legends like Paul Newman and Robert Redford; legends in the making like George Clooney and Denzel Washington; the new guard of young, handsome hotshots, like Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum; musicians like Paul McCartney and Kanye West; political and socials leaders like Bill Clinton and President Obama, fashion designers like Thom Browne and Ralph Lauren; plus artists (Jeff Koons), athletes (LeBron James), and funnymen (Jimmy Fallon). GQ Men celebrates all the facets of the modern man—smart and stylish both inside and out. 304 pages 200 illustrations English language Released in September 2013 Hardcover in a luxury slipcase
In the introduction to this volume, Chicago-based photographer Sandro Miller writes, "The people of Cuba provided me with faces that told a million stories--stories of war, of love, of heartache and pain, of hard work and determination--faces beaten up by the sun and the heat, but most of all faces that still had pride running deep within the pores of their skin." Miller was granted official permission to photograph Cuban athletes despite the ban, in place since 1959, on photographing sports figures in that country. Imagine Cuba 1999-2007 collects Miller's lush color and black-and-white portraits of athletes, young and old, against the backdrop of Cuba's streets and gyms, along with his sensitive diaristic narrative. Sandro Miller's work has been featured in a number of international publications, including theNew Yorker, Wired and Details.

The product of a unique, almost 20-year artistic collaboration between two stars in their respective fields, the actor and cultural icon John Malkovich and the photographer Sandro Miller, The Malkovich Sessions represents a profound meeting of the minds. The centerpiece of this stunning book is 'Homage', a series of 32 images that recreate the iconic works of photographers whose work inspired and influenced Miller, from Edward Curtis to Diane Arbus to Irving Penn to Annie Leibovitz. Malkovich's astonishing ability to channel others combines with Miller's technical mastery to produce images that transcend and amplify the originals, while creating something new and exciting in themselves. Bracketed by Miller's brilliant portraits of Malkovich as Malkovich, along with still work from a series of short films that the two made together, The Malkovich Sessions is a marvellous record of friendship and inspiration.
