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 Kyle Anderson, a man from Saskatchewan, Canada. Kyle is a health care professional in his forties who has battled depression and addiction for most of his life. He escapes by letting the camera become his mind’s eye, and hopes that each photo he takes allows others to see the world as he sees it, even for a split second.

About this photo: “Do you remember when we could put on our rubber boots and fly ?
Can I still ?
Was it in this lifetime ?

    This is a very expressive photograph. Empty, reflective, contrasts. Thank you for sharing.

    I like the puddles and un-evenness of the hanging swings. I think I was higher functioning in my childhood and happy.

      P.S. I loved to swing as rocking is my favorite stim, which swinging provides. I had my own swing, but neighbors got a loud and mean dog and that was the end of swinging. I had 15 years.
