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: “I happened to catch this stunning reflection while out for a stroll on an autumn day. I love the way it plays with our senses… What is the reflection and what is reflected? What is our true self? Is it our diagnosis? Or is it perhaps what we can create?”

    Absolutely stunning! I think our reflection is a necessary part of our who we are. It helps us create our true self.

    Very pretty. For me, autism and creativity are a part of who I am. I can’t separate myself into parts-nobody can. My reflection can be ugly-not a part of the whole that is me. An example of this would be one of my meltdowns. The whole of any believer is Christ-apart from Him we are nothing.
