The title of this photo-book by David Drebin got involuntarily a new subtly message after the apocalypse in Japan. That was not intended, as the teNeues Publishing composed this erotic collection of modern women portraits in the year 2011. Nevertheless, these female characters are still constructing their plans, wars, hopes, Waterloos …

Diary fragments of erotic weapons

December 6th 2010 for amazon by frizztext, Germany:

A table top book, with almost a documentary effect: a diary, a patchwork diary, collected rapidly by some jet-set ladies who were just in between time for the at least photographic fixing of their deleterious intermediate stations of their erotic wars. A modern feminine battles painting, sometimes triumphant moments in the morning after, in an expensive hotel with views of the harbor facilities of New York or Hong Kong, high above the city of Rio de Janeiro or Barcelona. But there are not always the victory celebrations, almost as often we find the beautiful women on the run down, thoughtful, argumentative. In the quieter phases, action-free, but filled with goals and plans, we notice phases between triumph and panic farewells: There are often shots that I would describe as “search images”: In huge, two-sided printed urban panoramas almost naked women can be discovered (not easy!): Very little behind a window or on a balcony, shortly before or shortly after one of their rich risk attempts to win by the arms of a woman. As the museum curator Michelle Marie Roy writes from Stockholm: “It is as if we have walked into the cinema halfway through the feature film.” Yes, exactly, and: you want to dive into this story, want to find out what happens next – or how it all began. You start to fantasize a full novel about such a single photo . A work of art is to trigger the power of imagination in us. David Drebin manages that in each of his compositions: He has broken the barrier between banal fashion photography and sublime work of art.

Tagebuch-Fragmente erotischer Kriegszüge,
6. Dezember 2010:

Ein Foto-Band, der fast wie eine Dokumentation, ein Tagebuch wirkt, ein Patchwork-Diary, zusammengeklaubt von einigen Jet-Set-Ladies, die kurz zwischendurch Zeit fanden für das wenigstens fotografische Fixieren ihrer eiligen Zwischenstationen auf ihren erotischen Kriegszügen. Eine moderne feminine Schlachten-Malerei, manchmal mit triumphalen Momenten, am Morgen danach, in einem teuren Hotel mit Blick auf die Hafen-Anlagen von New York oder Hong-Kong, hoch über der Stadt Rio de Janeiro oder Barcelona. Aber es gibt nicht immer nur diese Siegesfeiern, fast genauso häufig finden wir die wunderschönen Frauen auf der Flucht, niedergeschlagen, nachdenklich, streitbar. In den ruhigeren, Aktions-freien, aber dafür planungsprallen Zwischenphasen zwischen Triumphen und panischen Abschieden finden sich immer wieder Aufnahmen, die ich als “Such-Bilder” bezeichnen möchte: Versteckt in riesigen, zweiseitig gedruckten Stadt-Panoramen entdeckt man plötzlich klitze-klein hinter einem Fenster oder auf einem Balkon eine fast unbekleidete Frau – kurz vor oder kurz nach einem ihrer an Risiko reichen Versuche, mit den Waffen einer Frau zu siegen. Wie die Museumskuratorin Michelle Marie Roy aus Stockholm schreibt: “Es entsteht der Eindruck, als hätte man das Kino mitten im Film betreten.” Ja, exakt, und: Man will eintauchen in diese Story, will erfahren, wie es weitergeht – oder wie alles anfing. Man beginnt einen kompletten Roman um solch ein Einzel-Foto herum zu phantasieren. Ein Kunstwerk soll die Kraft der Phantasie in uns anstoßen. David Drebin schafft das in jeder seiner Kompositionen: Er hat die Schallmauer zwischen banaler Fashion-Fotografie und sublimem Kunstwerk durchbrochen.
