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 Kerry Gerdes, a woman from Plymouth, UK who lives with Asperger’s syndrome as well as anxiety and depression. She loves to shoot documentary, landscape, still life and abstract photography. She has a preference for film cameras, as there is an element of surprise, and you never know what sort of shot you’re going to get until you develop them.

About this photo: “I took this whilst out walking on Dartmoor. Which I like to do a lot, as I love to photograph landscapes and I love to go walking as it gets me out of the house.

See more from Kerry at her website.
