David Drebin

David Drebin

David Drebin is one of the greatest photographers in the world. At the end of the 1990s, David Drebin began to make a name for himself as an internationally successful fashion and advertising photographer only  shortly after concluding his studies at the Parsons School of Design in New York City in 1996.

His exclusive circle of clients includes internationally renowned companies like Davidoff, Mercedes, MTV, Nike and Sony. Drebin’s works have been published in magazines like Elle, GQ, Marie Claire, New York Times, Rolling Stone, Travel and Leisure and Vanity Fair.

David Drebin’s work plays with the American dream, with all of its hopes and illusions.
 At first glance, the world that David Drebin pictures is the world of the rich and the beautiful. Only at a second glance do the strong emotions under the seamlessly smooth surface become apparent, sometimes only indicated by a gesture, a glance, a tear, a movement or action. 

From resplendent panoramas or cinematic, glamorously staged moments, Drebin always tackles big emotions like humour, love and sex. With these basic themes as a backdrop, he creates images of gripping intimacy and closeness. The observer feels the tension and often also the melancholy. 

David Drebin was born in Ontario, Canada and has been living in New York since concluding his studies at the Parsons School of Design.
