Auto mechanics and Renaissance masters seem like an unusual combination, until it turned into to something brilliant.
U.S. based photographer Freddy Fabris always toyed with the idea of recreating some sort of tribute to the Renaissance masters like Giovanni Bellini, Leonardo da Vinci, Filippino Lippi, and Michelangelo, but wasn’t quite sure how to do so.
Once he stepped foot into a car mechanic shop in the Midwest, the idea came to him.
Fabris decided to use auto mechanic workers for his series of portraits portraying famous Renaissance paintings.
“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,” said Fabris.
His conceptual twist proved to be something remarkable, yet fun and uncommon.
