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 Annie, a woman living with PTSD, depression, anxiety and a myriad of disorders. Annie also lives with her cat, Zoe, and enjoys drawing, reading and walking in the months that her surrounding landscape permits.

About this photo: “Tick-Tock was named that because it reminds me not only of the insides of a time mechanism, but also of time itself, going in spirals. Sometimes it feels like a tidal wave.

    A “sense of time” is highly individual, especially with PTSD. Interesting post.

    My brother suggested I would possibly like this blog.
    He was once entirely right. This publish actually made my day.
    You cann’t imagine just how much time I had spent for this information! Thank you!
