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: “It’s amazing how we can find order and beauty in a seemingly chaotic world around us if we just change how we look at it.”


HAPPY NEW YEAR! Wishing everyone a healthy and happy 2015!

    This is so beautifully delicate… Yet there is strength in the integrity of each stem of ice, and fierceness in each jagged offshoot.
    This is the most astounding image I’ve seen today 😀

    I love this photo–and not just because it’s freezing in Boston today. Broken Light Collective is a group of photographers who have–or have been affected by–mental illness. As their mission says, they “are there to support each other, one photograph at a time.”
