Born in Canada in 1970, David Drebin is an internationally renowned, New York City-based photographer and multidisciplinary artist, celebrated for creating spectacular shots of dazzling subjects including photographs that tell a tale, allusive femme fatales and dream-like city/landscapes or dreamscapes, that evoke emotions, psychological perspectives and insightful reflections into the viewers’ own fantasies, imagination and experiences.
