The undisputed heavyweight of boxing books has arrived! Manny Pacquiao is one of the most remarkable, pound-for-pound showmen of our time. This month, the first and only authorized book of photography celebrating the People’s Champion Manny Pacquiao will be available for purchase with a foreword by Bob Arum. Immortalized by David Drebin, the landmark photographer who creates arresting images in the realms of fine art, commercial fashion and celebrity portraiture, the book illicits voyeuristic sensations of this legendary ring king. Many of the photographs found here are previously unpublished, giving it a unique and powerful edge. The volume includes the participation of Pacquiao himself and those members of the inner circles that have been closest to him throughout time: from managers to key sidemen. Manny Pacquiao has transformed the ring forever and continues to tower over the “sweet science” with courage, depth, creativity and dazzling energy. Containing 160 pages of raw image, from photography, to art and memorabilia, this monumental publication is absolutely a must-buy.

54 FIGHTS. 38 KO’S. 1 BOOK.
There is not a single book of photography in existence offering his global fans a closer look at Pacquiao’s rise from the ashes of poverty, to his current position as world ring master and Filipino Senator. The first boxer in history to win ten world titles. With over 100 million global fans and 1,1411.865 Facebook followers, when Manny Pacquiao fights, the crime rate goes down. Last November the televison show 60 minutes dedicated an entire segment to him. He is recognized as the best fighter in any weight class fighting in the ring today. He has been named Fighter of the Decade with 49 wins, 27 Knock outs and has been recognized as the best Pound for Pound. 140 million fans have tuned in to watch him fight. To honor this living legend, world-renowned photographer David Drebin has created a work that is truly epic, dramatic and cinematic in scale and his record breaking, intrigue-filled images shoot to thrill. The design of the book is meticulously crafted to further ignite the emotional bond between the fighter and his fans. Through unparalleled and intimate access, Drebin captures Pacquiao in his fiercest competitions as well as his quietest moments. Using a unique combination of dramatic and ‘never before seen’ images the volume offers millions of loyal fans a glimpse into the world of a folk hero, humanitarian and a sporting icon. Mixed with inspiring quotes from the champion himself it provides a lifetime journey as well as an opportunity to own a piece of history.

A graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York City in 1996, David Drebin rapidly made a name for himself as an internationally successful photographer. Famous fans such as Sir Elton john and Ben Stiller have purchased his photographs along with major art collectors around the world. Widely known for his trademark cinematic style of wildly lit, dynamic, intimate and provocative photo narratives, Drebin has produced some of the most iconic images of the era, and his limited edition prints adorn the walls of leading art galleries across the globe. You have certainly seen his images at international art fairs, in the pages of magazines, or within one of his widely distributed photo books. His sold out, “Movie Star” print broke a world record for doubling in price in less than one year’s time at Philipps de Pury’s auction house in NYC in 2009 and his sold out “Central Park” panorama, have fetched up to more than $75,000. His appearance at the 2011 New York Amory Show resulted in the sale of all available editions on view. Like Warhol before him, Drebin proves that art and commerce can successfully go hand-in-hand when a visionary eye is behind the lens.  In turn, he has been continually sought after to devise such sensational visual tales for some of the best-known actors, musicians, sports pros, fashion icons of our time including Diane von Furstenberg, Charlize Theron, Andy Roddick, Alan Cumming, Emily Blunt, Susan Lucci, John Legend, The Pussy Cat Dolls, David Caruso. He is represented by Camerawork in Berlin, The Young Gallery in Brussels, Fahey Klein Gallery in Los Angeles, Contessa Gallery in Cleveland, PLE in Vienna, and Torch Gallery in Amsterdam. He is represented by Stockland Martel for his commercial campaigns some of which have included work for MTV, Sony, Mercedes, Davidoff, New York Times, Conde Nast "Fashion Rocks" and has been seen in various publications including Vanity Fair, GQ, London Sunday Times Magazine, ESPN magazine and The New York Times Magazine.
