David Drebin  (Canadian, 1970) 

David Drebin (Canadian, b.1970) is a photographer well-known for combining voyeuristic and psychological viewpoints in his work. He offers the viewer dramatic insight into the emotions and experiences of his subjects, exploring the tensions between humor and sex, melancholy and sex, and melancholy and humor.

After graduating from Parsons School of Design in New York City in 1996, David Drebin quickly made a name for himself as an internationally renowned photographer, creating images of movie stars, athletes, and other entertainers. He was subsequently commissioned for countless high-profile advertising campaigns around the world.

Drebin’s first comprehensive illustrated book, Love and Other Stories, was published in 2007, and signaled his transformation from commercial photographer to art photographer.

Drebin’s photographs are epic, dramatic, and, above all, cinematic, and are contained in collections around the world. In a unique and opulent way, Drebin stages femme fatales against the backdrops of cities such as Hong Kong, New York, and Paris. With their impressive skyscrapers, the cities provide the viewer with a nearly infinite surface for the imagination. Drebin lives and works in New York City.
