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 Sarah, a woman who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in her twenties. Now aged 34 she continually battles the condition but is proud to have a family of her own and to be succesful in her career.

About the photo: “This is a photo of my little boy. My children’s smiles are my motivation to stay well.”


Only a few more weeks left on the Broken Light Collective crowdfunding campaign!

    A good close up shot. Was this photograph used on photoshop?

    No I took it very close to my little boy. Then changed it to black and white on the camera. X

    Hi, sometimes just photographing the eyes, without nose and mouth, hairline, provides a strong image.
