Freddy Fabris, a US-based photographer, had been contemplating for years to pay homage to the Renaissance masters until, by chance, he came across an old auto repair shop in the Midwest. Then the long-held idea morphed into a real project, creating an amazing photography series inspired by the great iconic paintings such as The Last Supper (Leonardo da Vinci) by Phillipe de Champaigne, The Anatomy Lesson by Rembrandt, The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo, and the portraits by Rembrandt. The idea is to recreate the original paintings in photographic medium with a conceptual twist. And the result is Brilliant, Beautiful and Hilarious!
“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. To take them out of their original context, yet maintain their essence.”
