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 post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety and a myriad of other disorders. Annie lives with her feline companion, Zoe. Her coping tools include meditation, art, writing, and petting Zoe.

About this photo: “Lately, my mind has been racing. Some days I simply cannot stop. Sleep is growing thin. It feels as if all of the inner neurons, the synapses, are wired! This photograph of a tree, represents all of that and more to me. It’s not only the stark nakedness, aloneness, but also growth, and reaching out even when I would rather curl up into my shell.
