Broken Light: A Photography Collective

Majestic Landscape

Photo taken by contributor Leya, a single mother working in the mental health field. She has a child with multiple barriers, including severe anxiety, and grew up in a highly anxious household herself with a family that experienced significant historical trauma. Leya believes that the key to our collective functioning is finding ways to calm our overactive minds, and for her that is walks in nature, photography, poetry, painting, dance and yoga. Cooking and eating delicious food is also a passion of hers. She primarily deals with nature and historic sites for her subject matter, and only sites that grab her and convey a story or emotion or sheer beauty. She challenges herself to capture those moments and convey the same sensation to her audience, and hopefully heighten that experience through artistic expression.

About this photo: “The beauty of the coastal waters of BC is beyond words. The vast and majestic landscapes of the West Coast shores remind me that Human history and my anxieties are small in scale compared to the time and geographical scale of Nature’s forces.  I am fortunate to be surrounded by such beauty!”
