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 David Ocampo, a 21-year-old graphic designer, musician and photographer from Mexico. David began feeling depressed at a young age. He has survived two suicide attempts, and continues to battle depression. The only times when he doesn’t feel the pressure and sadness are when he is creating art and taking photographs.

About this photo: “For me, the tattoos are the only way that I can show my history, stories that will be part of me for the rest of my life.
