Renaissance Masterpieces Reimagined







Quote:
US-based photographer Freddy Fabris had always wanted to pay homage to the Renaissance masters with his photos in some way, but he wasnt sure how until he stumbled upon an auto-mechanic shop in the Midwest. This led to a brilliant series of portraits with auto mechanics reenacting famous Renaissance paintings.

I particularly like some of the Rembrandts.

No, this guy's work is more subtle than that. he's applied his photo manipulation software very carefully, esp. on the men's faces and hair/beards. really enhances the connection.

I loved the tilt of the heads in the last supper and God and Adam pics, and the ratty old phone book in the first Rembrandt is genius

Yes, phone book was perfect.

And the creative use of tools and car parts and containers as props is perfect.

The expression on Judas' face in the Last Supper is awesome.

There's a joint-creation feel to it. The models put themselves into this.

The two guys handing over the wrench got really into it, love their poses and expressions.

That's how jokes can pan out. Exaggeration and absurdity are part and parcel of humour.

I love how Jesus's halo is represented by a hub cap. And doubting Thomas on the mobile while Philip is trying to listen in on what the bloke on the other end of it is saying.

Oh, and the food for the feast having been procured from the lunch shop at the corner. Fish 'n chips anyone? It is a solemn and special occasion, you know. The meat and blood of Jesus Christ.

Fucking cannibals.
