Broken Light: A Photography Collective

Free Spirit

Photo taken by Josefine, a swedish photography student currently based out of Los Angeles. The reason she decided to pursue photography full time is because she saw the impact pictures can have on people, both by looking at them, and making them. While volunteering for a church program that takes in victims of sex trafficking, she walked alongside a lot of mental struggles. She wants her pictures to be a voice to those that have no voice of their own yet, and to bring out the beauty hidden in the midst of brokenness.

About this photo: “This picture to me represents the freedom, joy, beauty, and excitement there is to living life to the fullest. It’s a picture about holding nothing back, just truly enjoying every moment.

    Love this! Especially because the girl’s face is hidden. Makes me feel like it could be me – and I love when I pic and do that! :)
