David Drebin, Digital C-Print, 'Selfie', 2014

David Drebin (b. 1970) - Canadian photographer
From an edition of 7
Image dimensions: 48 x 72 ¼ in. (121.9 x 183.5 cm.)
Sheet dimensions: 49 ⅞ x 73 in. (126.7 x 185.4 cm.)
Slick and saturated, the high-glamour photographic world of David Drebin is layered with hints of humor, fantasy and danger. "Selfie" depicts an all-too familiar modern scene: a beautiful young woman - one of Drebin's femme fatales - poses for a selfie. Reflected in a window overlooking city lights and veiled in magenta light, it takes a moment to realize she is alone. In this action, the viewer becomes a voyeur, lured into the event, yet removed from it.
Executed in 2014, this digital c-print is from an edition of seven. The image measures 48 x 72 ¼ inches. Excellent original condition.
