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 David Ocampo, a graphic designer, musician and photographer in his twenties from Mexico. David began feeling depressed at a young age. He has survived two suicide attempts, and continues to battle depression. The only times when he doesn’t feel the pressure and sadness are when he is creating art and taking photographs.

About this photo: “This is an image from a series called “Life.” All I can say is that I found peace from all my problems just in apreciating some little things in life, things that are always there but barely noticed.”
