ABOUT JOÃO CABRAL
A Portuguese photographer. João Cabral lives and works in the Porto region (Portugal).

This academic training was, for him, essential to approach classical photography through light, drawing, and composition.
Street photography in Portugal. He began by taking an interest in landscapes, but his approach now turns more towards street photography and documentaries, a decisive moment, combining subjectivity and cinematographic vision.
Black and white photography of Portugal. All of his current work consists of a systematic approach to black and white photography, architecture and street photography, creating timeless images of personal stories related to imagination and the past, childhood and the passage of time. Many of his photos are thought in advance, with various improvised elements.
