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 Ty Fitzgerald, a man who has been diagnosed with Bipolar II. Ty has a fondness for Lo-fi and Lux filters because they intensify shadows, highlights and colors. Such photos visually represent the way he sees the world, a little brighter and darker than he imagines those without bipolar disorder see the world.

About this photo: “This photograph of a dilapidated building is another example of how I love to photograph beaten down and broken things. I think it shows the effects of time and is testament to the inevitability of our demise.

    “I think it shows the effects of time and is testament to the inevitability of our demise”: I love the fact that the grass in front of this building has been cut, but the building itself is slowly decaying. The duality between life and death is fantastic.

    Is the rust on the roll up door making all these red and violet hues? It looks as if it’s a door to somewhere wonderful 🙂

    Shows a once useful building past its best, but its walls exude a mellowness in the sunlight.
