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.

Please welcome first-time contributor Michael, a 50-year-old software engineer from New Zealand who was diagnosed with clinical depression several years ago. To help his treatment, his family presented him with a camera, and membership in the local photographic society. He and his camera have been constant companions ever since. In trying to communicate how his depression feels through photography, he has been better able to understand it himself.

About this photo: “Sometimes I lose sight of the rhythms and harmonies of life, as everything becomes a chaotic blur.
