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 Danielle a contributor with a host of mental health issues that she refers to as her “mental mess.” It includes depression, anxiety, and hypomania. She uses her camera to express her inner self and to help her through challenging situations.

About this photo: “I like to photograph the unexpected. Moments with a bit of a twist that might not seem beautiful to most people at first look. I stumbled upon this building recently in Brooklyn, NY. It looked more like a prison than a school, with high fences and graffiti… and yet, there was something I found to be beautiful almost inviting about this place that at first seemed quite scary and intimidating.
