David Drebin’s photographs are epic, dramatic and, above all, cinematic. His work combines voyeuristic and psychological viewpoints in a unique manner. The photographer offers to the beholder an exciting insight into the emotions and experiences of the protagonists of his illustrative worlds. It is predominantly the night shots of glittering metropolises such as New York, Hong Kong, and San Francisco which serve as gigantic backdrops for his photographs.
With their impressive skyscrapers, they provide the beholder with a nearly infinite surface for the imagination. Thus, it is only consistent that Drebin gives the viewer a voyeuristic insight into the apartments, where he mystically stages attractive women in a glamorous and sexy manner.
After successfully completing the Parsons School of Design in New York City in 1996, David Drebin rapidly made a name for himself as an internationally successful commercial and fashion photographer. Among his admirers are such personalities as Ben Stiller and Sir Elton John. As early as in 2005, Drebin had his first solo exhibition at CAMERA WORK. This was followed by a comprehensive illustrated book entitled “Love and Other Stories” in 2007. His second publication with the title “Dreamscapes & Girls“ offers an exemplary overview of Drebins work from the years 2000 to 2009. 52 photographs in total demonstrate the versatility of the artist’s work. Cityscapes and fashion photographs are complemented by panoramic pictures of Capri or the majestic coast near the Italian city of Amalfi.
At the opening of the exhibition, his new illustrated book, “The Morning After,” has just been released by teNeues.
