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 a woman with recurrent clinical depression. She also suffers from insomnia and at times hypomania. She is trying to work her way out of a severe episode.

About these photos: “I like to create photographs using unexpected sources of light, especially when I can’t sleep and don’t want to wake my family by turning on all the lights. I have always had trouble falling asleep, but when my moods are off it gets worse. These long exposures were created from photographing digital clocks in the dark. I think that they can represent well the disorder of my thoughts when I am revved during the night.
