Hailing from New York, Freddy Fabris is the son of two dancers from the American Ballet Theatre at the Lincoln Center. With over 16 years in the photography industry, Fabris has undertaken photoshoots across the globe. His spectrum of work is broad and includes both commercial and conceptual projects.

With art a dominant force in his life from an early age, Fabris grew up in one of the most exciting periods of post modern artistic evolution. With artists including Andy Warhol, de Kooning and Rothko paving the way at the time. Later, upon moving to Buenos Aires, Fabris became an incredibly sought after commercial artist for his instantly recognisable aesthetic. To date, he has worked with BMW, Coca Cola, Toyota, Panasonic, Saatchi & Saatchi, and Levi to name but a few.

Fabris’ photography is incredibly detailed, and airs a sense of gravitas that makes his work identifiable from the offset. His latest conceptual series ‘The Renaissance’ is no exception. With an early background in painting, Fabris wanted to use this collection to pay homage to the works of classic painters like DaVinci and Rembrandt while using his camera to capture the image in his signature style.

“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.”Each piece in ‘The Renaissance’ series shows an amazing level of skill. With each composition meticulously planned, and the use of light to uniquely illuminate each subject gives a particular feel that is ubiquitous in classic renaissance paintings.The Renaissance series has been awarded the APA Conceptual photography award, 1st Place International Color awards & the One Eyeland Silver award.
