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 in Manhattan. She has been diagnosed with many mental heath conditions, including Major Depressive Disorder, Panic Disorder, and Bipolar Spectrum. She uses photography and writing to help cope.

About this photo: “Sometimes photos of strangers out and about in the community can say more than set-ups ever could. I like this particular capture because it takes bubbles, something fun and nostalgic, something beautiful and almost magical, and transforms them into something cold, something that gives the feeling of distance and isolation. They almost appear to create a wall of glass separating myself from the subjects. Similar, in a way, to the glass lens of my camera behind which I so often hide.”
