Auto Mechanics Hilariously Recreate Renaissance Paintings

US-based photographer Freddy Fabris had always wanted to pay homage to the famous paintings of 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 photo series of portraits with auto mechanics reenacting famous Renaissance paintings.

“Translating painting into portrait photography was a challenge I looked forward to,” Fabris wrote on HuffPost. “I wanted to respect the look and feel of the original oil paintings, but needed to come up with a conceptual photo idea that would create a new layer to the original.”

Fabris is a professional photographer, so the rest of his cool photos are definitely worth checking out too!
