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 Britta Froehling, a 39-year-old woman living in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. Britta was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, Substance Abuse and Eating Disorders, but has overcome most of these afflictions, and found better ways to express herself and deal with life’s joys and sorrows.

About this photo: “This photo was taken on a day where everything seemed overwhelming, even the colours. I was seeking minimalism and simplicity, wishing my mind could be still and zen-like… I haven’t achieved it yet.” 

Find more from Britta at her blog and flickr.

    A beautiful image, I love how the surface the shadow has been taken on adds pattern and tone to the shadows.
