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: “This was a portrait that I took of my grandfather three weeks before he died in December 2014. It was the last time that he went outside.” 

Find more from Mark at his website.

    I love how the diagonal divides the image into shade and light. Now knowing the story behind the image it’s almost like the blurred background with the golden light is a metaphor to where he has gone to: into the light.

    Mark…….so many memories and events I have let slide by with only the latent images left in the folds of grey. So proud of you for honoring the moment with your camera…….stay on center (it’s my one day @ a time mantra). en theos….j
