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 Ali, a 40-year-old father of two from London who was diagnosed last year with Anxiety and Depression. He is an author, a carpenter, and an occasional accountant.

About this photo: “This one is called Atomistic –  We don’t live in a vacuum. Our interactions with others affect them, and affect us. Sometimes it would be nice to bounce through interactions without feeling anything, and perhaps more importantly by not hurting others. When the darkness is most acute we can damage those around us badly, the guilt gives our darkness a self perpetuating weight and momentum.”

    Really cool pictures, the blue is really beautiful against the glass (assuming it is glass). Interesting description as well.

    Thanks for sharing,
