Funny: Renaissance and baroque paintings imitated as images of auto mechanics


deutsch_s1

Paying tribute to the great renaissance and baroque painters has been a wish of photographer Freddy Fabris for a long time. However, he wasn’t quite sure about how he could fulfill that dream till he discovered a car repair shop in the American Mid-West by coincidence. With the help of a team of eager and eccentric auto mechanics he succeeded in imitating some of the most popular paintings of those two epochs – including monumental works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarotti and Rembrandt van Rijn – aesthetically and humorously. Below I’ve attached the three pictures I consider his best. 🙂

Apart from these group photos, Fabris also shot some pictures that have been inspired by Rembrandt’s individual portraits, such as his Man in a Golden helmet.

    • Every single day I visit a couple of photography related websites, like dpreview, petapixel, heise (a German site), and some others. I do it either in the morning while drinking coffee or after work.
