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.

Please say a warm hello to first-time contributor Aaron Fisk, a 32-year-old Combat Infantryman from Anchorage, Alaska. He has been managing PTSD for 10 years using photography and cinematography. 

About this photo: “This photograph is of my Grandmother while she was putting on her shoes to go out into her garden.  She was very quiet that day and her mood shows straight through this image.”

Find more from Aaron at his photography blog.

    Perfect lighting to frame her face, which looks slightly glowing from deep inside.

    Beautiful photo! I love your posts. Would you mind terribly if I featured you in my blog? I have a blog for my multi-media class about anxiety and depression and I would love to address these artists by featuring your blog.

    nice portrait, I find it harder to do portraits of those close to me than total strangers. I guess I feel I can hide in the shadows of my unknown self…..good job…en theos monos…j
