The Renaissance was a time of rebirth. It was anything but industrial, focusing on reviving classical learning, art and culture.
Photographer Freddy Fabris has blended the ornate time period with the Industrial Revolution in a set of photographs titled “The Renaissance Series.”
He recreated timeless works of art with gears, wrenches and twisted metal.
“For many years I wanted to pay homage the great Renaissance masters,” Fabris wrote on the Huffington Post.
He explained that translating paintings into photography was a challenge he gladly took on, but it wasn’t until he stumbled across an old car shop in the Midwest that inspiration hit him.
“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,” he wrote.
Fabris selected three works by Renaissance masters and took portraits in the style of Rembrandt.
The Last Supper inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci and Philippe de Champaigne
The Anatomy Lesson inspired by Rembrandt
The Creation of Adam inspired by Michelangelo
Portraits inspired by Rembrandt
