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: “I have always loved the lines and the light in this image. Now that I’m living in recovery, I find it has even greater significance. Those dark shadows can remain on the horizon while our lives are illuminated and we can keep our clarity and focus; even when the shadows are in plain sight.

    I love your interpretation, and all that space in the photo is space to expand in, too.
