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 Mark, a portrait photographer from Durham, North Carolina, who lives with bipolar disorder.

About this photo: “Self portrait. One of my many. I hate the way I look when I smile.”

    It’s a nice photo of a photogenic photographer. It has a lot of light and not too much contrast, which I like. His rugged features really bring character to the shot.
