Portraits of Auto Mechanics in the Style of Renaissance Paintings by Freddy Fabris. Now why didn't I think of this?!

Chicago-based photographer Freddy Fabris has worked for years on commercial projects for clients like Leo Burnett, Saatchi & Saatchi, and Ogilvy & Mather, but it was a recent decision to focus on a personal project exploded into a bevy of awards and accolades. Fabris, who has a background in painting, had long been ruminating about how to pay tribute to the works of classic painters like Rembrandt and Da Vinci using his camera. While accompanying a friend to a cluttered auto repair shop, inspiration suddenly struck. Fabris would pose the mechanics in the style of classical portraits, and in tableaus reminiscent of Philippe de Champaigne’s The Last Supper and Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam. As he shared the idea with colleagues and collaborators, everyone quickly jumped on board and the Renaissance series was born.

While the photos are admittedly absurd, 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, the portraits in particular are strangely dignifying. The photos have since won the 1st Place International Color Award, the One Eyeland Silver Award, and an APA Conceptual Award. You can explore more of Fabris’ work at http://www.fabrisphoto.com.

Hudson Motor Car Co. had a promotional silent film shot for their Essex motor cars in 1920. The story of the film and actors is here: http://www.welcometosilentmovies.com/features/sweethearts/chap10.htm

Many years ago (35?) at Pasadena's Rose Bowl Swap Meet I came across three framed stills from the movie and purchased this. The photo prints are now being claimed by age and poor storage. Before they disappeared I have scanned them at 300 dpi and pass them along to you in the name of history. The best photo happened to be in the best condition and has been cropped for appreciation of the car and the sign being held up by the actress in the car.

The 1920 Essex was the first generation of this brand. Had a 4 cylinder F-head motor and the entire car was stoutly built for its day and its low price. Thirty five years ago I owned a 1922 Essex coach (two door sedan) that I drove some and thoroughly enjoyed.

Thanks for Pix member Wayne Graefen for sending this along!

German automaker Porsche is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its 911 model in a big way – literally!
Artist Gerry Judah had the idea to create a gravity-defying sculpture that could hold three iconic Porsche 911 cars high in the sky. The original 1963 911, the 1973 911 Carrera RS, and the 2013 911 were all sitting pretty at more than 100 feet above the grounds at this past 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, England.

Growing-up in and around Harley biker culture, there was never any talk of African American riders– let alone that may actually have a part in contributing to American motorcycling culture. It was like Black riders flat-out didn’t exist. Now finally, their incredible story is starting to emerge through books like Soul On Bikes and the Black Chrome exhibit at California African American Museum. The images and accounts are not just amazing to look at and enjoy– they are also incredibly inspiring. Many thanks to The Vintagent (one of my favorite blogs) and The Onyx Rider from which many of the pics & stories came.

Driving an Aston Martin DBR1, Stirling Moss gives his customary wave to Peter Collins as he passes the latter’s Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa as they power across the tortuous mountains of the Targa Florio course during the 1958 running of the classic race. Moss was regarded as perhaps the greatest sportscar racer of all time but Collins was no slouch – and had partnered Moss to win the Targa in the Mercedes 300 SLR in 1955. On this occasion, Moss was out of luck, retiring the semi-works Aston with gearbox trouble while Collins went on to finish 4th, partnered by Phil Hill.

Six historic Lotus Formula 1 cars were incorporated in this spectacular sculpture by artist Gerry Judah that was the centrepiece of the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Britain’s largest car culture event. The 28-metre tall sculpture was the 16th created by Gerry Judah for the Festival of Speed, an annual event held in the grounds of Goodwood House in West Sussex, the family seat of the Earl of March.



Each year, Goodwood has featured a marque, a carmaker that inspires disciples because of its style, success on the track, or both. In 2012, the featured marque was Lotus, the British car manufacturer that sponsored Gerry Judah’s installation.

The sculpture was designed to capture the essence of Lotus from its beginnings to the present. A 3-D infinity loop was designed, resembling the grandest, most ambitious Scalextric track ever imagined.

The track itself is a triangular section of 6mm flat sheet metal with a “continuously variable curve developable” surface, which was painted white. These were fabricated by Littlehampton Welding and transported 22 miles to Goodwood in 11 sections by individual articulated lorries and a police escort.



Multiple cranes were used to erect the installation and place six significant Lotus cars onto its surface. The cars, which were loaned by Classic Team Lotus and the Lotus F1 Team, included a green and yellow Type 32B, the car in which Jim Clark won the 1965 Tasman Series in Australia and New Zealand, and a red-and-white Type 49, in which Graham Hill raced to the crown. The other cars were a JPS-liveried Type 72, in which Emerson Fittipaldi became the sport’s youngest champion; a black-and-gold ’79 responsible for Mario Andretti’s world title; a yellow Lotus 99T driven by Ayrton Senna; and the current Lotus grand prix car as driven by Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean.

Gerry Judah worked closely with Lord March and Lotus to determine the design. The winding curves represent Lotus’s natural environment: cars that are built for cornering. The 150-metre-long track is shaped into the shape of a half-hitch, or trefoil, knot.

This Alfa Romeo poster celebrates the fourth Mille Miglia event of 1930 won by the great Tazio Nuvolari driving an Alfa Romeo 1750. The race was run over a figure of eight course covering a thousand miles from Brescia via Rome and back again to finish in Brescia. In the 1930 race Nuvolari cheekily surprised his great rival Achille Varzi by overtaking at night with his headlamps switched off.

Did Pablo Picasso Vomit On This Porsche 911? Who knows, but Champion Motorsport of Pompano Beach, Florida does an annual art-car collabo for the mega artsy confab, Art Basel Miami Beach. This year the shop teamed with "neo-pop" artist Romero Britto on a new Porsche 911 Cabriolet (991). Whimsy. So much whimsy.

Britto is a Miami-based painter, serigrapher (er, stencil-ist), and sculptor who made his bones (ie, ca-ching) doing corporate commissions, starting in 2003 with a limited-edition redesign of Absolut's vodka packaging, he went on to deliver corporate works for Movado, Disney, Enrico Coveri, Pepsi, the United Nations, and Royal Caribbean Cruises, among a number of causes and charities.

But it's his cars that have held our eyeballs at gunpoint, with customization projects for automakers like Volvo, Bentley, Audi, BMW/Mini and this helmet for Helio Castroneves.

Hey, why starve for your art when you can pocket sweet commissions. It worked for Michelangelo, whose ghost is already on its way to Miami with a portable Chinese water torture kit.

Snakes and Ladders poster by Tim Layzell. Innes Ireland was a racing driver of the Old School. In many ways his racing career came a decade too late, the advancing professionalism of international motor racing leaving little room for the hard drinking, hard driving mentality which pervaded the post-war years and was exemplified by the likes of Hawthorn, Collins and Duncan Hamilton. But while Innes raced mainly for fun - for the hell of it - he was truly a driver of the front rank. A TT and Grand Prix winner, his raw speed and competitive nature saw him drive for many of the top teams of the time, including Shelby American. Here, during the 1964 Targa Florio, Innes wrestles the big, 289 Cobra through the Sicilian mountains in pursuit of the Ferrari GTO of Luigi Mosca and Fortinbras while in the background a Porsche 904 spins. The Cobra was unsuited to the sinuous mountain circuit and Ireland charged to no avail - his Kansan team mate crashing the Cobra through a wall and into retirement. The Ferrari also retired while the race was won by the small, nimble 2 litre Porsche 904 GTS of Pucci and Davis. There's no substitute for cubic inches...?
