Photographer Freddy Fabris spent years wanting to pay homage to the legendary artworks of great Renaissance master painters, but figuring out how to do so with his camera was a challenge. Recently, he finally came up with an idea that blends the style of old with ideas that are new: it’s a series of portraits of car mechanics in a repair shop, created with the look and feel of Renaissance paintings.

The photo above is a homage to The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. Here’s The Anatomy Lesson by Rembrandt:

And here’s The Creation of Adam by Michaelangelo:

Fabris also shot a series of Rembrandt-inspired portraits:

“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,” writes Fabris. “To take them out of their original context, yet maintain their essence.”
