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!


Please say hello to first-time contributor Ilanna, a 59-year-old writer and photographer living in Toronto, Canada. For many years Ilanna has coped with panic disorder. Photography is her way of coping with the world, and dealing with the traumas she has faced, included a devastating accident 20 years ago which caused the onset of chronic pain and ensuing poverty. Her photographs have been exhibited in galleries around Toronto.

About this photo: “Snow and water. Winter on the Beach in Canada.”

    beautiful shot. I keep thinking that despite the ice/ the frozen-ness, there is warmth in the golden light, a lot of warmth.
