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.

Photos taken by first-time contributor Ty Fitzgerald, a man who has been diagnosed with Bipolar II. Ty has a fondness for Lo-fi and Lux filters because they intensify shadows, highlights and colors. Such photos visually represent the way he sees the world, a little brighter and darker than he imagines those without Bipolar see the world.

About these photos: “I love taking photos of clouds and power lines. It’s a beautiful juxtaposition of glorious natural beauty and the mundane man-made trappings of urbania. These were shot in Orlando, and New Smyrna Beach, FL with an iPhone and tweaked in Instagram with a Lo-fi filter and Lux at 100%.
