Bipolar Abstraction

Broken Light: A Photography Collective

Photo taken by a contributor in New Jersey. She’s a woman in her thirties who has had many diagnoses over the years, including major depressive disorder and bipolar II, as well as traits of borderline personality disorder, OCD, and ADD.

About this photo: “Sometimes abstract photos capture my moods even better than photos I take of people, places or things. They’re unexpected, unpredictable, and change from one frame to the next, much like my moods. I took this one sleepless night, on the move, dancing around with a glow stick and my camera. To me, it evokes mania/hypomania and insomnia emerging from the darkness of depression.

Surreal Bodyscape

Broken Light: A Photography Collective

Photo taken by contributor Brandon who has suffered from depression and severe anxiety for as long as he can remember. He is also a self-harm survivor. His anxiety hit its peak when he was in 11th grade. He was at school and ended up fainting on the steps. After that, he was put on anti-depressants. He can’t say they fully helped the depression, but at least they stopped the fainting.

About this photo: “Delicacy is the first image of a new series I’m working on combining the nude body and surreal/abstract landscapes. I chose a 1×1 aspect ratio because I want the focus to be on the vulnerability of the human body and the beauty that comes with it.”
