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.

Photos taken by first-time contributor Khalil McBride, a teenager from Connecticut who has been living with psychosis and depression since he was 13-years-old. Over the years, he has seen numerous therapist and been inpatient several times, and when everything seemed hopeless, he discovered photography.

About these photos: “The ocean reminds me of my thoughts, completely wild crashing everywhere, but also they can be very calm and mindful. That’s why I chose the ocean for my subject because it resembles how I think.
