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 Tara O, a freelance photographer with depression from Phoenix, Arizona, who specializes in pinup and retro style photography. She went to Arizona State University and studied Fine Art, and loves making more meaningful images also.

About this photo: This image attempts to capture depression in a way most people don’t understand. It’s not just sad, it’s a lot of emotions all once, sometimes making it hard to distinguish what you are even feeling.
