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 Danielle, a woman in her thirties who has been diagnosed with bipolar II disorder. Consistently seeing her doctors and taking her medications is keeping her somewhat level, but the battle for stability is an ongoing one.

About this photo: “I love taking photographs, but I also love combining multiple photos to create something new. I have found that sometimes blending photos helps express my varied moods more than any one photo can. To me, this one conveys depression, fear, pain, and even hope.

    An image that tells a story, cleverly created from a number of photos.
