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 Kevin Wayne Gardner, a 53-year-old man from Oklahoma who has suffered with bipolar disorder all his life. He deals with his illness through counseling and photography. While he is out shooting photos, he is able to focus on his subject matter, and concentrate solely on getting a great photo.

About this photo: “I recently purchased a new Nikon D3200 dslr camera and while out for a walk in the downtown area of Miami, Oklahoma, I thought I would try out each feature on my camera.”

Find more from Kevin at his website.
