Danielle Hark of Broken Light Collective challenges us to photograph between. This week, capture something between two things, reflect on the process of transition, or interpret this word in your own way.
Say hello to Danielle Hark. Danielle is a photographer, writer, life coach, and the founder of the online gallery and nonprofit Broken Light Collective, which empowers people affected by mental illness using photography.
They recently created a video using over 200 photos submitted to their blog to inspire people, fight stigma, and raise awareness. Broken Light Collective’s first live gallery exhibit will be opening at the Fountain Gallery in New York City on June 26th.
Between. Capture something in the middle of two things. It can be a person or object, or simply the space in between. It can also be a feeling or relationship — a bond that connects people, or a space that separates. This word might also reflect a choice you need to make — the challenge of choosing one thing over another — or any kind of transition, from childhood to adulthood, single life to married life, day to night.
As someone who has struggled with mental illness, I often feel like I’m walking a precarious tightrope between extremes. Between balance and imbalance, despair and hope, darkness and light. This struggle often comes across in my photography.
This week, in a post created specifically for this challenge, share a photo that says BETWEEN.
It can be a literal interpretation of something between other things, or a more figurative approach. Try photographing the moments between the moments. The breaths. The sighs. The stolen glances. Show us anything that means between to you. Have fun and make sure to keep an eye out between the lines!
