From Huffpost Arts & Culture.

For many years I wanted to pay homage the great Renaissance masters. 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 in to place.

I selected The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, by Phillipe de Champaigne, The Anatomy Lesson by Rembrandt, and The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo as the main pieces, and then expanded the series with Rembrandt inspired portraits.

Freddy Fabris has been shooting people & conceptual photography for the last 20 years.
