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 Jodie Beardmore, a 21-year-old photography student about to enter her final year of university. Jodie has begun creating a series based upon mental health after recently being diagnosed with depression.

About this photo: “My image ‘The death of a dream’ focuses on the loss of passion I endured at the beginning of my illness. The model in the image is placed within the rubble of a place she once called home, her thoughts racing around her head. Infected by the illness as it consumes her every being. A single red rose is laid next to her representing the passion she lost and how ultimately she can regrow.”

Find more from Jodie at her website.
