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 Luis Rosado, a man from Staten Island, NY who has been suffering from anxiety and depression for over 30 years. After struggling with an alcohol problem for over two decades, Luis is celebrating more than six years of sobriety. Photography has always been a wonderful outlet for him to capture and hold on to the brighter moments in his life.

About this photo: “My newest submission is titled “Serenity” and is definitely a product of right time, right place. I was stepping out of my car and there it was. As I approach my seventh year of sobriety I find myself using photography to slow down my anxieties. The images give me focus and keep me out of my head.”
