In his newest photographs from the series entitled "Beautiful Distasters", David Drebin develops saucy-seductive stories around the voyages of his desirable protagonists. Inapproachable, unattainable and likewise irresistible, the women in these photographs own an eroticising charisma which is a trademark of David Drebin’s work. The spectator becomes a voyeur and gets a glimpse of apartments where glamourous, heroic, and attractive women are staged mysteriously or of unique subjects in which the female body is shown lascivious and passionate. But below the beautiful surface of the models it quakes: Drebin shares their desires, wishes and hopes with the spectator. So he succeeds in doing photographs full of pathetic intimacy and closeness which combine topics such as humor, love, erotic, loneliness and melancholia.
