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 Ty Fitzgerald, a man who has been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Type II. Ty has a fondness for Lo-fi and Lux filters because they intensify shadows, highlights and colors. Such photos visually represent the way he sees the world, a little brighter and darker than he imagines those without bipolar disorder see the world.

About this photo: “This photo of a highway reminds me of how I feel when I am manic. I always take photos out of the window as I am driving and I say “Orlando at 70 miles an hour”. This one just happened to line up perfectly. It was shot in Winter Garden, Florida.

    Lomography and such! Film and film-like effects are still compelling even in this digital age of ours. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    Wonderful picture. Lo-fi is where my heart is. I wish I still had a Polaroid camera.
