When you want to pay homage to the best artworks in the history, you have to come up with a rare idea to go about it. Ace photographer in the advertising industry, Freddy Fabris has come up with a fantastic The Renaissance Series that features mechanics and their hardware tools. The artist born in New York and raised in Buenos Aire “wanted to pay homage to the masters for years and ‘translating painting into photography was a challenge I looked forward to”.

“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. To take them out of their original context, yet maintain their essence. By chance I came across an old Midwest car shop that triggered this series, the place screamed for something to be shot there, and slowly but steadily ideas started to fall into place,” Fabris told The Huffington Post.
