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 who suffers from bouts of severe depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. She enjoys capturing the world around her, whether it is with her Canon dSLR or her iPhone.

About this photo: “Flying is not easy for me, but seeing something like this makes it all worth it. This particular view looked like a living work of art, and I wanted to jump right in… to bounce on the clouds and dance along the line where the sea and the sky become one.

That vantage point, high above, made the world and my problems in it suddenly feel so small in the grand scheme of things. I think we all could use a reminder like that sometimes… Our challenges are just a tiny piece of the big picture.

    I too am terrified of flying but my fear has not crippled me. HAPPY to see another has not allowed theirs to cripple them too

    My fav line: “Our challenges are just a tiny piece of the big picture.“ Thanks for sharing such a clear shot of a never-ending beautiful sky dotted with puffy clouds. It’s awesome.
