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, a woman in her thirties who has been diagnosed with bipolar II disorder. Consistently seeing her doctors and taking her medications is keeping her somewhat level, but the battle for stability is an ongoing one.

About this photo: “I love taking photographs, but I also love combining multiple photos to create something new. I have found that sometimes blending photos helps express my varied moods more than any one photo can. To me, this one conveys depression, fear, pain, and even hope.

    An image that tells a story, cleverly created from a number of photos.
