“Flirting with Danger” in David Drebin’s new photography book

Every photography tells a story. In David Drebin’s case, every one of his photographies is an entire novel. An imaginary one, a better one, a beautiful one. It opens doors to a mysterious journey of the imagination, inviting its viewers to momentarily forget the world around them. Following the release of seven bestselling books, including the recent Collectors Edition, a portfolio of the artist’s 50 most iconic images in an XXL limited edition of 500 copies, his latest monograph, “Flirting with Danger”, takes Drebin’s storytelling to the next level.
