To the Sea

Photo taken by contributor Phedias Hadjicharalambous, a 33-year-old man from Nicosia, Cyprus. He began delving into photography last year during a difficult time after the death of his beloved grandmother. It helped him cope with personal challenges, as well as challenges that arose when his mother began battling severe anxiety. Thankfully with the proper treatment his mother is now doing better. Phedias’ photography is minimal and his motto “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” reflects his philosophy about life. He has studied astronomy and planetary sciences but his passion is art.

About this photo: “I call this ‘To the Sea.‘ This picture of a person walking in the distance was taken at a beach in Meneou, Cyprus, an island in the Mediterranean Sea.

    There’s something very moving about this photograph. The simplicity of the composition expresses a feeling that is not simple at all.

    Without that tiny lone figure, the photo would be nothing. I really like it!

    Wow, this is so simple and yet it looks SO big. It’s very humbling in that it gives the perspective of just how small we are.
