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 Tom Robinson, a 30-year-old English photographer who has traveled extensively through South East Asia as well as South & Central America. He worked for a year at a special needs school, which was an eye opener and made him especially sensitive to those who are struggling, both physically and mentally.

About these photos: “While sitting on Brighton beach (UK) back in 2005 with my new girlfriend Verity I thought the view of our feet pointing out to sea would make a nice photo. Ever since then we’ve continued to document our travels in this way, resulting in a collection of over 100 photos. In 2011 the series took a new twist with the arrival of a third set of feet – our daughter Matilda. You can already see her little feet getting bigger and bigger.”
