Flirting with Danger
Beschreibung des Verlages
A picture should tell a story. It should open doors to a mysterious journey of thought by making 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 signature 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 subject.
In a cinematographic manner, David Drebin creates a dream world that, thanks to his hyper-realistic style, at the same time seems so lifelike that as a viewer you feel like 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 images can achieve maximum effect and thus skillfully bring the emotions of the viewer:inside to their peak.
