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 Hank Shaw, a 63-year-old writer living in Rochester, N.Y. Many of his friends and family members have suffered from depression and serious mental health challenges.

About this photo: “I took this at Niagara Falls in March two years ago and edited it with a painting app. NF was a thrilling place to be at the end of winter. Few tourists, a river jumping with energy and floodwater, seagulls flying and screaming at the brink of the falls, trees crystalline with ice, and buildings on the other side silhouetted in the heavy, frozen mist. To me, this image represents turbulence, with both a positive and negative side. And it represents the turbulence that can be found in the natural world as well as in our minds.”
