We wouldn’t blame you if you assumed that these indescribably awesome portraits of John Malkovich are photoshop job, but they aren’t. American portrait photographer Sandro Miller and, of course, the inimitable John Malkovich who collaborated to recreate a wide variety of iconically famous photographs.

Here you see their sublimely surreal recreations of Diane Arbus' Identical Twins, Herb Ritts' photos of Jack Nicholson as The Joker, Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother, Andy Warhol’s Self Portrait (Fright Wig), Arthur Sasse’s photo of Albert Einstein Sticking Out His Tongue, and Philippe Halsman’s portrait of Salvador Dalí.

The longer we look at these photos, the harder it is to convince ourselves that we’re actually awake.

During my time in Ethiopia, I met many people who rely on health care outposts like the one seen in the bottom two pictures here. Through these outposts, children and families get vaccines, diagnoses, and treatment for diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia.

But most of these families, and most of their health care facilities, don’t have regular access to clean water. When I asked people about their greatest needs, almost all of them—from the Women’s Health Army volunteers to children—cited clean water first.

More than 45 million Ethiopians live without clean water. I spoke to women who walk miles every other day with heavy jerrycans to get drinking water for their families. The people I met explained how lack of clean water is a health problem, a financial problem, and a family problem.

So for the next week nerdfighteria is teaming up with water.org to raise money to build sustainable wells so that more than 4,000 people in Ethiopia can have clean water. Please join me in donating—or, if you can’t, in spreading the word. Thanks, and DFTBA.

UPDATE: Bill Gates has pledged to match the fundraiser if we hit our goal of $100,000 for Ethiopia.
