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 Laura Grimsley, a third year photography student from Kent, United Kingdom. She has battled with Depression and Anxiety since childhood. Laura uses photography to share her views on the world.

About this photo: “I really wanted to capture my views on how I see the world through this photograph. I used multiple exposure to show that I see things differently than most. With depression, I find it very difficult to enjoy myself when I am suppose to, such as family meals or days out. This photograph was taken at Sissinghurst Castle garden grounds in Kent last summer.”

    Such a powerful picture, seems like a collage of places! And the B/W makes the whole result more dramatic and intense. Well done Laura!

    I like it – such a complex, interesting image. I hope you can banish the “shoulds” at some point, at least to a degree. (And how many people REALLY enjoy themselves at family meals? ;-))
