Although alluring, the idea of a sensual wonderland seems to be permanently beyond our grasp. Yet so compelling is the notion, we would do almost anything to attain such bliss. It is the tension and instinctive drama of this age-old quest that David Drebin chronicles in his latest work--aptly titled, Chasing Paradise. These skillfully arranged scenarios convey the thrill of deeply illicit adventures. We find ourselves intrigued, yet also slightly concerned by the risks. Set against distinctive backdrops, Drebin's models seem to occupy a supernatural state of being. Powerful and all-knowing, each one has the mystery of a mythical figure--upon whose loveliness we mortals can only hope to gaze. Drebin seduces us with every twist and turn of his darkly sensual narratives. Never before has temptation seemed so tantalizing--or so worth pursuing.
