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 Aggie, a woman currently living in Norway. She has had two very close friends, one male and one female, who have suffered from anorexia and related mental health issues, including depression. It was hard for Aggie to watch her friends suffer and even harder knowing that the only thing she could do was try and make them feel less alone and important. That is something she is constantly trying to do to support her friends.

About this photo: “The Jump is a picture that represents the freedom of my life at the moment. The blue sky and Fyord are peaceful and happy and a contrast from the the life I left behind. It shows the leap from one culture into the great unknown – the water. Its fearless and brave and all the things I am trying to do with my fresh start.”

    Beautiful photo! Damn, I’ve got to get a real camera! Not my iPhone camera – It just doesn’t cut it!

    Well done.
