Hiding in the Dark

Photo by contributor Zoe, a teenager and second generation Broken Light Collective contributor. Zoe has experienced ADD and periods of mild depression. She became interested in photography in 2012. Zoe mostly uses herself as her model and takes self-portraits to express feelings or concepts that she wants to communicate. Photography is one coping mechanism she uses during challenging times. She is also interested in drawing, music, and other art forms.

About this photo: “This represents hiding in the dark I guess. I watch a lot of the world’s happiness, and almost become jealous. I sometimes feel intimidated by people who have no major problems in their life, so I don’t always try to join them, and I just stay in the dark.”
