One talented artist made auto mechanics the focus of his creative photography series that pays tribute to some of the most famous Renaissance paintings in the world.
Freddy Fabris has photographed people for over 20 years, but was recently able to fulfill a lifelong dream with his humorous tribute to famous Renaissance paintings.
“For many years I wanted to pay homage the great Renaissance masters,” Fabris told the Huffington Post. “Translating painting into photography was a challenge I looked forward to. I wanted to respect the look and feel of the originals, but needed to come up with a conceptual twist that would create a new layer to the original.”
“By chance I came across an old Midwest car shop that triggered this series, the place screamed for something to be shot there, and slowly but steadily ideas started to fall in to place.”
The series pays tribute to famous paintings like Phillipe de Champaigne’s “The Last Supper” and Michelangelo’s “The Creation of Adam.” He later expanded the project to include portraits in the same style.
