“John is a pop culture icon," Nerdist quotes Miller. "John does opera, theatre, has his own clothing line, and is one of today’s most sought after screen actors. He is brilliant and confident and willing to take risks. He was very focused on perfecting the makeup for the Herb Ritts shot of Jack Nicholson as the Joker. With makeup and styling taking at least two hours per shot, John would study the original photograph. You could see John working on his character, as makeup, hair and styling was being done. It was truly a joy to see such a perfectionist at work."

The exhibition will be open 7th November 2014 at Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago (USA).
