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 Annie, a woman who lives with depression, anxiety, PTSD, dissociative disorder and a myriad of other issues that haunt her. She enjoys writing, creating art, and her cat Zoe.

About this photo: “I wanted to call this photo “Ambiguity” because the viewer cannot quite determine where the photo was taken, the context is uncertain.  That is rather how I feel when I experience a dissociative episode.  I will stay with that title.  It seems to fit.”

    I really love this picture (and I try not to say tat too often!). It reminds me of a Stieglitz photograph. Very stylish.

    Very first impression: six diagonal guitar strings from a giant guitar. Guitar is very important to the residents of our local prison. They love to play. The grid on the right reminds me of a cage. A fascinating image.
