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 Danielle a contributor with a host of mental health issues that she refers to as her “mental mess.” It includes depression, anxiety, and hypomania. She uses her camera to express her inner self and to help her through challenging situations.

About this photo: “I like to photograph the unexpected. Moments with a bit of a twist that might not seem beautiful to most people at first look. I stumbled upon this building recently in Brooklyn, NY. It looked more like a prison than a school, with high fences and graffiti… and yet, there was something I found to be beautiful almost inviting about this place that at first seemed quite scary and intimidating.
