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 n23art who has struggled with depression for much of his life. Most of the time it’s manageable, but there have been a few times when it has hit him very hard. He is originally from the UK, but currently lives in Thailand.

About this photo: This was taken in a floating village in Phang Nga Bay which is populated entirely by Muslims. The village has a lot of tourists, which explains why the locals were so blasé about having their photographs taken and meant that I was able to capture this moment of a mother with her two children.

    a floating village? That must really be something to experience. Great photo capturing an everyday moment.

    BTW I carelessly let the domain name on my website lapse and it’s been bought by some Chinese company (not sure why) so the n23art link will take you there instead of here:
