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.

Photos taken by D. I have been staying in someone else’s home this week, so predictably, insomnia has reared it’s head, with a hint of hypomania. When I am in that place, I often do long exposure photos to pass the time. These were from shooting tiny lights in their kitchen. I moved the camera creating waves that can represent everything from brain waves, to mental fuzziness and confusion, to the overwhelming waves of moods and emotions that can be caused by mental illness.

Seeking submissions for the Broken Light Collective. Please send photos today.
