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 Danielle, a bipolar woman in her thirties. Her mood shifts leave her either able to do nothing at all or an extraordinary amount all at once. She likes photography because it is something she can do any time, even when she swings to an extreme in either direction.

About this photo: “This photograph is a long exposure light creation. I like that it is chaotic but there is beauty in the chaos. It reminds me of mania in the midst of depression, something I have been dealing with recently and on and off throughout the years.
