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 autisticaplanet, a 33-year-old woman who has Asperger’s Syndrome and accompanying anxiety related to social and sensory issues. She also has OCD. She writes a blog to pass along lifelong lessons to help others, adults in particular, dealing with Asperger’s. She hopes to help neurotypical people better understand the “complexities within the complexities” of autism spectrum disorders. She’s had a passion for capturing images since childhood, when her father bought her a Kodak 110 on vacation. She has been told that she sees and captures what others overlook or miss.

About this photo: “This photograph was taken after a therapy day in Genoa, IL in February of this year. I am drawn to nature and buildings that are in the process of being reclaimed by nature. The barn was unoccupied and the day was brisk. There was a loneliness I sensed that I could relate to.”
