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 Leonard, a 66-year-old man who has suffered bouts of bipolar illness since his twenties. He has been a fine arts digital photographer for the past 13 years and prior to that a Pediatrician for 23 years.

About this photo: “This photograph is called ‘Armageddon’ and was taken in Central Park, NYC in November of 2012.

Allegorically it represents the light and dark sides of life which most of us dealing with mental illness have experienced.

Find more from Leonard at his photography website.

    Yes, the effect amplifies your picture’s title. Do you mind sharing how you achieved it? If it’s a trade secret that’s OK 🙂
