A Photographer’s Cinematic Images Show a Glittering Urban Fantasy at Contessa Gallery

October 21, 2015 - Bridget Gleeson - Artsy

The photographer David Drebin moved to New York and built his artistic reputation on a certain kind of image: dramatic shots of femme fatales set against glamorous urban backdrops. It’s fitting that his new show at Contessa Gallery is called “Chasing Paradise.”

ARTNews Magazine Features David Drebin Photography

February 28, 2011 - Rebecca Robertson

A talented photographer without equal, David Drebin is above all a storyteller. His brooding and glamorous works tell tales of lust and voyeurism, as well as seduction and escape. Not afraid to be daring, Drebin also tantalizes us with subtle allusions. His sweeping cinematic images feature the majestic backdrops of such world cities as Berlin, Paris and Rio de Janeiro. These photographs pulse with a charged sensuality, using color and light to maximum effect.

The February 2011 issue of ARTnews magazine featured a 4-page article on the career and the art of David Drebin. It highlights some of his best works several of which are on view at Contessa Gallery.
