Using his camera, commercial photographer Freddy Fabris pays homage to the great Renaissance masters. Creating various tableaux at an auto mechanic shop with real auto mechanics, Fabris beautifully lit, staged, framed, and coloured his photos to establish the right tone for his classic reenactments.
“I’ve always wanted to recreate classic masterpieces” -Photographer Freddy Fabris
“I’ve always wanted to recreate classic masterpieces, but I knew that in order to create something that would create a new dialogue on an old subject, there had to be a twist. How could we tell these stories in a new context? How could we bring a little humor yet respect and homage the originals?” photographer Freddy Fabris wondered.
He certainly succeeded with his new subjects. Timothy Chalamet, eat your heart out.
