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 by contributor Roshni Ravi, a 24-year-old mental health professional based in Bangalore, India. She is interested in the exploration of existential ideas of hopehappiness, meaning, presence and being in therapeutic practice. Roshni also lives with a diagnosis of clinical depression. She finds negotiating her roles as both a mental health service provider and user an empowering and challenging experience. Her photographic work reflects her idiosyncratic attraction towards birds, the rain and bright colours. When she is not obsessing about life’s eternal quest for meaning, she enjoys baking, dancing and watching wildlife.

About this photo: “I was sitting atop an elephant when I took this photo, on a cold winter afternoon in Kaziranga, Assam. It was the last photograph I took that day. I return to it often, thinking how perfectly real it is, the lone soldier, heaven, earth and everything in between, everything revealed and ultimately alone.

    Beautifully done! I like the silhouette. I shot an urban sunset of Bucharest last week with a similar sky. I couldn’t decide how dark to leave the foreground and in the end chose to show more of the buildings. I think I’ll redo it and go for more of a silhouette as you’ve done.

    Awesome shot! I love nature photos. This one captures the etherial looking shades & colors of the hills. I like how the tree is in silhouette.
