Internationally-renowned and New York City-based photographer and multidisciplinary artist David Drebin, is celebrated for creating spectacular shots of dazzling subjects including photographs that tell a tale, voyeuristic scenes with people and dream-like city/landscapes that evoke emotions, psychological perspectives and insightful reflections into the viewers’ own imagination and experiences.

His work is often described as epic, spectacular, dramatic, cinematic, dreamy, imaginative, smart, sexy, elegant, unexpected and sometimes even funny – providing something for everyone, by appealing to new patrons of the arts and the most sophisticated of collectors.

A graduate of Parsons School for Design, David’s career began in commercial photography and quickly made a name for himself advancing into the world of contemporary fine arts. His unique vision, distinctive depth and often passion or tension-filled images provides an infinite surface for the imagination making his work highly desirable as art to adorn and complete the most beautiful spaces, as well as, for periodic high profile campaigns.

Throughout his career, Drebin has worked with individuals, A-list celebrities and global powerhouse brands such as Mercedes, American Express, Adidas, The May Fair Hotel, MTV, Nike, Breil, Sony, Davidoff and many more. He’s contributed to top publications such as Vanity Fair, New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, GQ, Condé Nast Traveler, National Geographic and ELLE.

Over the years, his filmic signature style has evolved into other art forms including lightboxes, neon installations, etching on crystal starfire glass and most recently, the revolutionary “photo sculpture” where he transforms his iconic muses and femme fatales into breathtaking high-definition 3D art masterpieces.

Collected worldwide, David is represented by some of the world’s finest art galleries including Camera Work (Berlin), Contessa Gallery (US), Galerie de Bellefeuille (Montreal), Photographers Limited Editions (Austria), Atlas Gallery (UK) and Fahey Klein (Los Angeles) to name a few. His work has been shown at many of the most prestigious art fairs around the world over the last decade including Art Basel Miami, as well as, in multiple exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Berlin, Istanbul, Amsterdam, Austria, Brussels, Las Vegas, Chicago, Montreal and Toronto.

Drebin has an exclusive contract with teNeues in Germany, who publish and distribute stunning monograph coffee table book collections of his work globally including, "The Morning After" (2010), "Beautiful Disasters" (2012), “Chasing Paradise” (2015) and “Dreamscapes” (2016).

About David Drebin

Love stories and landscapes are at the foundation of David Drebin's panoramas, portraits, and neon sculptures. His monograph Love and Other Stories (2007) features solitary women in urban tableaux—high-rise apartments buildings and terraces, freeway overpasses and hotel rooms. Dressed alternately in bikinis, evening gowns, and negligees, the women appear to be in various stages of a love affair. They pout while lying on couches and ascend grand staircases; their legs emerge from doorways and car doors, their concealed upper bodies assumedly engaged in passionate embraces. Drebin's cityscapes present sweeping views of famous locales such as Jerusalem, Paris, and New York and incorporate both built and natural features. In San Francisco Dusk (2010), an illuminated grid of buildings reaches toward the misty blue horizon of the Pacific Ocean.
