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 NYC. She is on the bipolar spectrum. She loves her family, art, and helping other people.

About this photo: “So often when I’m rushing from point A to point B, I forget to look up and enjoy the wonder all around, whether I’m in nature or the middle of a city. Taking photos helps me slow down and appreciate the beauty and uniqueness wherever I am.

    Thanks, it’s nice to have a beautiful urban pic on the site, as we often have a lot of rural stuff posted already . . . also, I just was diagnosed a couple weeks ago with bipolar disorder, after having received a major depression label for yrs. . . .

    I so agree that taking photos helps you slow down. It also keeps you looking for things you don’t usually notice.

    I like how the building is centered. I agree that photography causes me to slow down and appreciate life. When I have my camera & am taking pictures in nature, that is the only time my anxiety dissipates & my focus settles.

    Nice take on the Monument theme! I assume that’s the Empire State Building? It’s certainly a building among buildings. It may not be the tallest anymore but it’s still one of the best, as far as I’m concerned. I mean, how can you beat the name itself? The Sears Tower? Nyah! No class. 🙂

    You’re welcome to come and see what my take on the theme is:
