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.

    From one Sol to another: Excellent idea!

  34. Jenell June 22, 2019

    These are wonderfully done. But it is in being so well done, capturing the expressions of the originals, that a common artistic absurdity is revealed. I notice, am immediately aware, in viewing these “re-enactments”, of how carefully studied body poses and facial expressions totally fail to depict actual, real humans as they are in real life.

    Just brilliantly done.
