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 Jacque who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and ADHD. She is a graphic designer, wife, and mother to two boys. She is learning to draw from God’s strength to get her through every day. She has also found art and music to be great healers and outlets for the soul.

About this photo: “As someone who suffers from BP, I often feel like staying hidden in the weeds, camouflaged from everyone when my dark days set in. 

The flip-side is when I go out into nature and look around me, the freedom of taking pictures helps me to feel so much better and lifts my mood tremendously. 

It’s the people on BLC that have shown me a new way to find freedom on even my darkest days. Taking pictures and writing can break the chains when I’m trapped within my mind.

    beautiful photo and yes Jesus is truly the bulwark that holds us fast during the storms of life and the dark night of the soul… Keep looking to Him as your hold breathes in His beauty 😉

    Absolutely beautiful. And I agree with the music and art aiding healing. It’s almost as if creativity releases endorphins–happy hormones–that draw out the beauty of God’s intent.
