David Drebin

Born in Toronto in 1970, David Drebin lives and works in New York.


After graduating from the Parsons School of Design in New York City in 1996, David Drebin rapidly made a name for himself as an internationally renowned photographer by creating portraits of celebrities. His first solo show in Berlin in 2005, soon followed by the publication of his book "Love and Other Stories" in 2007 confirmed his status as a fine-art photographer. Staging dramatic icons within opulent cityscapes from New-York to Hong-Kong, Drebin's pictures tell us a story. Real stills excerpted from a movie, they depict its climax, that very moment when everything is about to change. Indeed, the profound cinematographic nature of Drebin's work is to be linked to his inclination for topics such as melancholy, humor and sex. Both voyeuristic and psychological, his creations have the ability to resurface deeply buried emotions within each and every one of us.


Regularly published by TeNeues, his books are often paired with exhibitions in the most prestigious international galleries and art fairs from Miami to Istanbul, alongside with legendary artists like Helmut Newton, Chuck Close or Andy Warhol. Collected worldwide, some of his photographs have reached record prices _ such as "Central Park" _ which was sold for $78,000 dollars,  at Art Miami in 2010.
