SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Are these moments real? Did everything happen as we see it? Kevin Icabales shows us how «Something to Think About» is a series that focuses on different perspectives in an everyday situation.
The series aims to portrait candid moments from an ever-changing scenario that does not search for the casual bystander’s approval. Every person, animal or stage props resembles the opposite of how we are accustomed to perceiving it. As a consequence, the whole series feels stretched, always poised between reality and fantasy. Nice to notice that highlighting such inconsistencies in this world is a complex task. As Kevin Icabales states, it has allowed him to find a reason to smile despite recent happenings and to bring joy, laugh, and raise an emotional connection with photography.
Street photography can be a meaning in our personal growth. It helps in being more patient, disciplined, and acting with integrity. «Something to Think About» is still an ongoing project that the author plans on developing further.
Kevin Icabales is a Filipino Street Photographer from Metro Manila, Philippines. His distinctive style of candid storytelling has a bit of tongue-in-cheek humour. In his daily life, he is a real estate photographer and also a singer-songwriter.
Icabales found his passion for candid moments when shooting weddings, and over time this has led him to street photography. This genre was mysterious to him before he read books and watched online videos of other Street Photographers. After that, there was no turning back: as he states, he knew what he was called to do.
His style of shooting changed considerably during the years. Nowadays, he is more aware of ways to frame pictures to tell stories and what to exclude from a photograph. It is like making music with lots of scales in your mind. Eventually, you pick the melody that works for your ears.
