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.

Please welcome first-time contributor Kyle Anderson, a man from Saskatchewan, Canada. Kyle is a 41-year-old health care professional who has battled depression and addiction for most of his life. He escapes by letting the camera become his mind’s eye, and hopes that each photo he takes allows others to see the world as he sees it, even for a split second.

About this photo: “In Northern Native tradition the aurora borealis are the souls of the departed ascending into the heavens…with sights like these it’s not hard to believe.

    I have only seen pictures of the Aurora Borealis.
    What an amazing experience it must be to actually see this in person!

      unfortunately what my eye saw and the camera’s eye saw were two different things. It was a 30 second exposure with the camera propped up on the roof of my car.. you need no light pollution and an usually clear sky to get shots like this.. I’ve have been out in spectacular solar events with mind blowing aurora and got only mediocre results.it takes all the right factors being in place.. but I guess so does magic doesn’t it?

    beautiful work. I love the idea of working through pain by letting go with photography or any art expression. I think there is real truth in that. And I appreciate your thoughtful blog.
