New York born artist, Freddy Fabris, is a renowned photographer who lives and works in the US.
He has over 16 years of experience in the photography industry shooting globally for commercial and conceptual projects. He has worked with BMW, Toyota, Coca Cola, Saatchi & Saatchi, Panasonic and Levi to name just a few.
Fabris, who has a background in painting, ha...d long wanted to pay homage to the works of classic painters like Rembrandt and Da Vinci using his camera.
Of the project Fabris says: "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 Phillipe de Champaigne, ‘The Anatomy Lesson’ by Rembrandt, and ‘The Creation of Adam’ by Michelangelo as the main start point, and then expanded the series with Rembrandt inspired portraits."
The staggering amount of craft and skill present in each shot is undeniable. From the careful composition of bodies to the striking use of light to illuminate the face of each subject is simultaneously pin sharp, clever and innovative. The photos have since won the 1st Place International Color Award, the One Eyeland Silver Award, and an APA Conceptual Award.
