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.

About this photo: “How many times was I hospitalized? 

Always on the inside looking out~ down and wondering when, I would be on the outside looking in~ up at faceless windows and knowing the pain inside. 

The maze of Psychiatric hospitalization and finding one’s own path through ~ taking steps at our own pace towards recovery.

    I can truly relate. I love the black and white, the angles and dimensions. Sadly, I was bullied by psych staff who were supposed to be caring for me. By God’s grace I’m not in the “will it ever end cycle” anymore. I take my meds and receive therapy so I can avoid having to return. I also study Scripture. Consistency is truly key. I like that there is a cross in the bottom picture. The first is dark, the second is like free-fall and Christ is there to save you in the third. He won’t leave or forsake you.

    Your pictures are raw and stark yet through it all, the light emerges. A very perceptive view of life through your eyes and thus – your camera. Thank you for sharing.
