Who we are & why we are

Welcome to the gallery site of Broken Light Collective. We are artists of all levels and abilities who are affected by mental illness. We create and we share our work for the therapeutic benefits to us, as well as others who may be struggling and feeling scared and alone. Together we can move from disconnected to collective.

Photo taken by D.C. This photo was taken with a Holga lomo 35mm camera, so I really didn’t know what to expect until I got the roll developed. For some reason, this one spoke to me. I think perhaps because it could mean different things to different people, or even the same person on different days. The shadowy figure could stand for depression following you around, or haunting memories, or for some of us the actual feeling of being followed or surrounded by dark shadowy figures. It can also represent that all too often out of control feeling that can occur when you suffer from mental illness.
