A mere mention of “mechanic” may bring to mind a greasy guy wearing an overall uniform. Heck, you probably even have a specific person who immediately pops up in your head as your go-to mental picture of the word.
These hardworking guys make sure that our vehicles run smoothly, carrying out repairs, and necessary maintenance work. When you chance upon a friendly, jokester type, then taking your car to the mechanic shop would be more of a delight than a chore. Believe it or not, some mechanics can be the funniest.
American photographer Freddy Fabris perfectly captured the hilarious side of our awesome auto mechanics. His dream has always been to recreate Renaissance paintings via photography and when he found this auto-mechanic shop in the Midwest, he knew it was the perfect place for the photoshoot.
As he explained:
“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.”

These photos are really brilliant and funny. My favorite has to be the second one. To view more of Fabris’ photos, go check out his official website.
