Full Description

“Many other exhibitions and books have followed, but his latest, Flirting with Danger, from German luxury publisher teNeues, is one of his very best.” — Maxim

“The images in Flirting With Danger are glossy, dreamy and voyeuristic. There are spectacular nightscapes, epic seascapes, fireworks, balloons, aeroplanes, grand architecture and lots of women..” — Amateur Photographer
A picture should tell a story. It should open doors to a mysterious journey of thought by letting its viewers forget the world around them for a brief moment. David Drebin is known for infusing his photographic masterpieces with compelling narratives. Although each of his works is marked by creative uniqueness, his signature style puts a distinct stamp under each image – a romantic melancholy with a hint of eroticism that elegantly invites you into an exciting fantasy. In his new illustrated book Flirting With Danger, the renowned star photographer now presents particularly sensational moments of this theme.

David Drebin creates a dream world in a cinematographic way, which, thanks to his hyper-realistic style, seems so lifelike that the viewer feels part of the scenery. Perhaps it is this twist that makes his artworks so suspenseful, or perhaps it is the way he skilfully stages his protagonists. Each of his pictures leaves the impression of its own dramaturgy, which only stimulates the mental cinema. What will happen next? What happened before?

The artist’s new coffee-table book is now dedicated to the fascinating attraction of the forbidden and the dangerous. Intense snapshots show approaches to the exciting sides of life. The result is a book in a class of its own. In an extra-large format, the artist’s pictures can achieve maximum effect and thus skilfully bring the emotions of the viewers to their peak.

He offers the viewer a dramatic insight into emotions and experiences which many of us have doubtlessly felt at some point of our lives.
