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 Hank Shaw, a 63-year-old writer living in Rochester, N.Y. Many of his friends and family members have suffered from depression and serious mental health issues.

About this photo: “There are many dark days when a few hours wandering around with the camera is the best possible therapy. And there are other days when I get an absolute sense of wonder and a pure mindful pleasure. This simple image falls into category too. It was taken with a digital camera and softened with a painting app.”
