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.

Love these laughs from very creative people
You could all be actors. Enjoyed this !
Really clever and new. Thoroughly enjoyed them. Hope there’s a whole vogue for these!
Fantastic work Mr Fabris.
They should make a calendar!
there are brilliant evocations of Renaissance artists view of ordinary folk. Amazing how humans’. Appearce hasn’t much
changed over the centuries.Kudos to. the photographer’
So I’m happy to recognize the historic pictures that these poses represent, but not all of them. Would the photographer put in the titles of pictures represented. Rick L.
Click on the artist’s name & go to his web site. You will see the name of the Renaissance picture these are imitating. The single photos are merely portraits in the renaissance style & the others are still life. The first photo is ‘The Creation of Adam’, ‘The Last Supper’, the last one is ‘The Anatomy Lesson’. Well Done!
Very creative especially the children.be safe an well
These guys are very handsome! Where is this garage?
You know what it is? Lighting! Lighting is EVERYTHING!
Too cool, well done, actually beautiful Art. The shadows and the poses. I wonder though, do these guys get much done? How will they celebrate their fame?
One guy there is not a mechanic–he/she is an artist
Freddy may not be a mechanic, but he is a great artist. The lighting is perfect.
Really good! The photographer did an awesome job. Love it!
COVID-19 has killed many people; but, it hasn’t killed creativity. Kudos to all the creative minds that brought us these pictures!!!

The still lifes are especially beautiful.
They should have been naked, “imagine”.
Wonderful photography/lighting/posing of these Auto Mechanics depicting the Renaissance work of arts, very cleverly done, I liked the Last Supper with their Hamburger, Chips & Noodles :)
My Dad would have loved these, I think. He was an excellent car mechanic and welder.
beautifully done, and they really look the part
Not just brilliant photography, but really, really beautiful.
Such beautiful photos. These men are perfectly cast in each shot.
This series of photos is a great leveler, so imaginative and well done.
