Meet the Masters: Auto Mechanics Recreate Classic Paintings

The Renaissance masters have inspired people for centuries, so it’s only natural that artists and creatives would want to build on the work of the masters – or pay homage. Photographer Freddy Fabris wanted to pay homage to the great Renaissance masters, which was a tough job considering the challenges of translating the paintings through photography.

Freddy wanted his work to reflect the look and feel of the original, but with a conceptual twist that would make it new. After spending quite some time with the idea, the photographer found his answer in an old Midwest car shop.

Thus was born the lovely series you see here.

For similar images on a more humorous side, take a look at men posing as motorcycle babes, and why men don’t make great models for cars.
