Who we are & why we are

Welcome to the gallery site of Broken Light Collective. We are artists of all levels and abilities who are affected by mental illness. We create and we share our work for the therapeutic benefits to us, as well as others who may be struggling and feeling scared and alone. Together we can move from disconnected to collective.

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: “Patterns in the sky.

The lonely swallow against the urban jungle .

Photographed at Nicosia the capital city of Cyprus.”
