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.

David Drebin (Canadian, b. 1970)

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, and psychological perspectives and insightful reflections into the viewers’ own imagination and experiences. His unique vision, distinctive depth and often passion or tension-filled images provide an infinite surface for the imagination. 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.
