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 by contributor Rhian Lloyd, a woman who faces mental health challenges every day, including anorexia and depression. In addition to regularly breaking down over her weight and/or feeling low and alone, she also deals with paranoia and panic attacks. Life is definitely a struggle for Rhian, but her passion for photography gets her through most challenges and she is able to project her feelings through the camera lens.

About these photos: “Ana, she calls to me. 

This photo is a very important piece that I have created to get back into some therapeutic photography. I have been feeling myself slip, even through my thoughts, lately when thinking about my weight. The coldness of the image slips through. Relapse has always been difficult to avoid so I decided to pick up my camera and fix that. The image can be interpreted any way.”

    A trouble shared is a trouble halved, but a photograph shared brings joy to many.
