Broken Light: A Photography Collective

We are photographers living with or affected by mental illness; supporting each other one photograph at a time. Join our community, submit today!


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: “Tranquility was taken at Pervolia area in Larnaca.

Almost clear sky at sunset with absolute no wind made it look so calm!”

    I am sure that already seen this photo, but it’s nice to see this image again – great work!


    • Thank you for the comment. This is a new image to Broken Light Collective, however, we have shared other photos taken by Phedias in the past that have a similar feel and aesthetic. You may be recalling one of those.

    I love the serentiy this photo evokes. I always find peace by the water and I love the path you have leading to it.

    Yet another beautiful photograph from you! This is really, really nice and definitely tranquil. I love the muted colors of the sky and the vibrant green, great composition. Well done.

    Today I followed two links, I thought randomly selected, to get to this memorable page. I have just started reading blogs and I am curious where my mouse clicks will take me.

    This page and it’s comments switched on a light for me. Instead of the depersonalization that some “experts” believe will result from the proliferation of social media, I at least, will happily discover more and more wonderful and diverse people and their wonderful thoughts, images, and ideas.

    Thank you.
