The noted photographer Freddy Fabris put together this spectacularly unique photo series which takes humble mechanics and converts them into mysterious and fascinating subjects of rich Renaissance paintings. Yes, in other words this series takes a greased up mechanic from your local auto body shop and makes him the subject of a classic Michelangelo creation.

Fabris himself has a painting background, and always wanted to find a way to pay homage to the great Renaissance painters who always inspired him growing up. One day, he went to a car shop in the Midwest and clicked a photo. It was there that he realized that these two seemingly unrelated and completely different things could be brought together in a peculiar and beautiful way.

The end result is a photo series that is confusing at first, but ultimately satisfying as it allows you to appreciate Renaissance art forms and celebrate your local mechanic at the same time.
