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 Keith, a photographer who has struggled with depression. Keith has spent the last year working on a 365 project, sharing one photo per day for 365 days. Through working on this project he has come to accept and understand his struggles with depression. For a long time he believed his mood swings and inability to connect with others was normal. It took until his disconnect affected his life with his little girl and fiancé before he finally sought help. Since then, he has been taking small steps towards bringing his life back to a happier place. Photography and medication have been helpful tools on his journey towards being a healthier, happier, more fulfilled person.

About this photo: “I have a fearful obsession with failure and letting my loved ones down. I know failure is a part of learning and of life, but the feeling of disappointing my family is heart wrenching. In my mind if I fail I’m not good enough for my family and eventually they’ll leave me. I have to constantly remind myself I am good enough and my family loves me no matter what.”
