Epic, Dramatic and, Above All, Cinematic Photographs by David Drevin at Camera Work

BERLIN.- CAMERA WORK presents David Drebin's new photographs, some of which originated in Berlin, from November 27, 2010, on. At the opening of the exhibition, his new illustrated book, "The Morning After," published by teNeues, was presented exclusively at CAMERA WORK.

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.

Drebin's intention is to liberate the viewer from the rules and standards of everyday life and to restore his faith, emotion, and humanity. The distinctive tension in his pictures arises from the combination of such topics as humor, love, and sex, as well as loneliness and melancholy. The panorama of the big cities, which, due to their format, form a tribute to cinema, serve as a stage for self-determined women, who are heroic even in mourning. Drebin lets the beholder share in these women's desires, dreams, and hopes. He always approaches them with great respect, and he manages to capture moments full of poignant intimacy and captivating heartiness.

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.

Since September 24, 2010, some of David Drebin's works have been presented in Stockholm's FOTOGRAFISKA museum in the group exhibition “Fashion!“, curated by CAMERA WORK. Michelle Le Roy, chief curator of FOTOGRAFISKA, wrote the preface to the catalog published by teNeues on the occasion of the current exhibition "The Morning After."

Among David Drebin's exclusive circle of customers are businesses such as American Express, Davidoff, Mercedes, MTV, Nike, and Sony. His works are published in magazines such as Elle, GQ, Marie Claire, New York Times, Rolling Stone, Travel and Leisure, and Vanity Fair.
