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 contributor Luis Rosado, a Floor Supervisor and 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: “Taken at work because I could. This company gave me my job back after my alcohol addiction made me unable to work. I am forever indebted to those who have helped me through my years of alcohol abuse. To those I dedicate my art.

    Very cool that you made a photo look kind of like an abstract painting!
