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 say a warm hello to first-time contributor Ben. Ben has an anxiety disorder that manifests itself in OCD and Depression

About these photos: “These were taken in Bedfordshire by myself during the summer of 2014. I was driving past these fields and the clouds were amazing, I pulled over to take a shot and also noticed a collection of wild poppies growing by the side of the field.

Whenever the sun is out and I can feel it’s warmth on my skin, and the fresh air in my lungs I like to just sit and absorb life, these pictures are a reminder of that feeling whenever I am feeling low.”
