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 Josefine, a swedish photography student currently based out of Los Angeles. The reason she decided to pursue photography full time is because she saw the impact pictures can have on people, both by looking at them, and making them. While volunteering for a church program that takes in victims of sex trafficking, she walked alongside a lot of mental struggles. She wants her pictures to be a voice to those that have no voice of their own yet, and to bring out the beauty hidden in the midst of brokenness.

About this photo: This photograph was made from three pictures that were taken as part of an assignment for school – I loved the colours and the happiness it visualised, so I decided to merge them into one, to give the photo another dimension. It’s not just representing freedom and happiness, it’s a LOT of it!”

    LOVE this! Offically have the “Chariots of Fire” theme song stuck in my head, now. 😉 It always plays as a loop in my mind when I run on the beach.
