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 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 disorder see the world.

About this photo: “This photograph of a dilapidated building is another example of how I love to photograph beaten down and broken things. I think it shows the effects of time and is testament to the inevitability of our demise.

    “I think it shows the effects of time and is testament to the inevitability of our demise”: I love the fact that the grass in front of this building has been cut, but the building itself is slowly decaying. The duality between life and death is fantastic.

    Is the rust on the roll up door making all these red and violet hues? It looks as if it’s a door to somewhere wonderful 🙂

    Shows a once useful building past its best, but its walls exude a mellowness in the sunlight.
