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 Daniel, a man in his forties of Puerto Rican decent who currently lives in Burlington, New Jersey. He was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and insomnia in 2007, but had been suffering for at least ten years before that. Photography has been his primary method of coping since he was a teen. He feels that the photos he takes have meaning and help him on his journey.

About this photo: “This was taken in Bordentown, NJ. As we walked, this enclosed  porch blew me away with all the knick-knacks. It gave me a very warm and cozy feeling. It was like seeing all of the good memories you’ve ever had on display.”

    U2’s “Pride (In the Name of Love) comes to mind as I look at this photograph. Love it! Thanks so much for allowing me in and connecting with me in this way.

    How fortunate that while walking you discovered this porch, and captured a one of a kind photo that was enclosed with good memories. Thank you for sharing, and allowing me to recapture those memories within your photography.

    Very nice! I’m glad you have found that photography helps. And this reminds me of similar places I used to see in New Jersey and New York when I lived in the area.
