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 Kyle Anderson, a man from Saskatchewan, Canada. Kyle is a 41-year-old health care professional who has battled depression and addiction for most of his life. He escapes by letting the camera become his mind’s eye, and hopes that each photo he takes allows others to see the world as he sees it, even for a split second.

About this photo: “Somehow the contrast of the power of the lightning in this image juxtaposed with the lonely fence post on the edge of the plain stirs a strong emotional response in me. On one hand, I am filled with awe of nature’s spectacular display, yet sometimes I feel like the fence post.. alone and small in the middle of nowhere.. yet a witness to Nature’s grand design and stunning glory.
