Auto Mechanics Recreate Renaissance Paintings

Photographer Freddy Fabris had always wanted to pay homage to the Renaissance masters with his photos in some way, but he wasn’t sure how until he stumbled upon an auto-mechanic shop in the Midwest. This led to a brilliant series of funny portraits with auto mechanics.

    And from their faces, I would bet the educational level of this group is higher than usual for auto repair shops. I forwarded this link to a friend in North Carolina who decided 40 years ago to do what he loves and opened his own car repair business — after getting an undergraduate degree at Duke and a masters’ degree in public policy from the University of Chicago!

    More please! Some of his other work would serve as a springboard for another series!

    Older But Wiser Gal: You can’t tell how educated or intelligent someone is by looking at their face.

    I wish there were pictures of the originals to compare to! BRILLIANT!

    Enjoyed these very much. Really well done portraits.

    Really superb. The lighting knocks me out as does the perfect posing of the mechanics.
    This is the work of a true artist!

    I keep going back to view these.
    They are absolutely and uniquely beautiful.

    Bravo. Superb pictures. Hope the subjects had as much fun posing as we did viewing.

    I love these photos. I recognize a couple, but not all. Has the artist thought about titling the works? Maybe something that pays homage to the title of the original?

    I agree with kungfool. Where can I get the calendar. These are marvelous photographs.

  19. Jeff Grant July 26, 2019

    Just beautiful and beautifully done. These are so well executed and thought through.

    Would be helpful to give names of the historic characters… but neat stuff!

    Amazing most had perfect period starches and beards. Very very clever brain to think of this.
