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 PJ Brez, a 28-year-old man who lives in the South Korean countryside. He has experienced depression, loneliness, homesickness, and feelings of isolation. He teaches English conversation at a university in Korea, but photography is his passion.

About this photo: “This was shot on one of the rarest films in the world, Kodak Aerochrome color infrared. Color infrared film has a very unique look that cannot be duplicated digitally. There are digital imitations, but I find them aesthetically lacking to the real stuff. So, to me, color infrared photography in its true essence is a dying art. In fact, it’s nearly extinct. From what I understand, there are fewer than 700 rolls in existence. I love this film for its psychedelic nature. It looks completely otherworldly. The clash of bubble gum pink and cobalt blue has such a cheery look. I only wish it were more widely available so more folks could experience it.”
