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 first-time contributor Brittany Tremor, a 23-year-old photography student at Texas A&M University-Commerce.  When she was 14, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Photography has always been a way for her to get outside of her head and recreate the things she sees around her or to convey what it’s like inside her head.

About this photo: “This photo sort of represents my relationship with the woman in the picture.  She and I had similar backgrounds and were both needing a friend close by to just let loose with, someone who wouldn’t judge and could understand how hard it is to deal with mental illness. I didn’t realize it when we met but she’s my accidental angel.”

    Thanks for sharing. Being Bipolar I don’t find it easy to share what is going on in my head with others, scared of the stigma.
