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 Luis Rosado, a Floor Supervisor / Lighting Technician of a film equipment rental house. He has been suffering from anxiety and depression for over 30 years, and has been sober for 4 years from an alcohol problem that lasted over 20 years. Photography has always been a wonderful outlet for him to capture and hold on to the brighter moments in his life.

About this photo: “My submission is called “The Light in the Darkness” and it was taken by me on my Samsung Galaxy III S and the photo was tweaked using Adobe Photoshop. The image is actually a piece of lighting equipment that I combined with a circular LED pad which I then colored and oversaturated.”
