How did the idea come to Miller

Reportedly this idea to create masterpieces from way back in the time which had also inspired the photographer to pursue his career came in 2013. While Miller was recovering from cancer, he admitted having time to contribute to his thoughts and his mentors. He said, while closing his eyes rest while recovering, all the pictures used to come back to him in his sleep and he could envision creating them and then displaying in a museum or a gallery. Miller then studied every intricate detail of the iconic photos including everything from clothes to props and the types of equipment that were used to shoot them originally. And while closing down to a person, he decided to ask his great friend, Malkovich who will be able to deliver it.
