Let Me In

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:

“Photo taken in my house.
It symbolizes anxiety trying to reach us.
Stay strong and let the dark silhouete out of your life.”

    I like shots where I can’t quite figure out how the photographer did it. This is one of those. Plus I like the use of shadows.
