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 Britta Froehling, a 39-year-old woman living in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. Britta was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, Substance Abuse and Eating Disorders, but has overcome most of these afflictions, and found better ways to express herself and deal with life’s joys and sorrows.

About this photo: “This photo was taken on a day where everything seemed overwhelming, even the colours. I was seeking minimalism and simplicity, wishing my mind could be still and zen-like… I haven’t achieved it yet.”

    A beautiful image, I love how the surface the shadow has been taken on adds pattern and tone to the shadows.
