Good News From Broken Light Collective!

9 Jun

Hello friends and family,

As you may or may not know, I have suffered from mental illness to varying degrees throughout my life. At times, it has left me unable to do anything, even get out of bed. When I was at my lowest, one thing that helped get me up and eventually out was photography. From my personal darkness, I started an online photography gallery for people living with or affected by mental illness to have a safe and supportive space to share their photos and stories. The site, www.BrokenLightCollective.com, has grown to over 10,600 followers/contributors from over 150 countries! Now, I am thrilled to announce that we are taking it to the next level…

Announcement 1: Broken Light Collective is now a non-profit organization!

Please check out this 3 minute video that I created with my amazingly talented editor/husband using hundreds of photos by people affected by mental illness! It offers a quick but powerful peek into the world of Broken Light Collective…

What now? We need your help to get our non-profit off the ground! Please share this inspiring video link on social media and with anyone you know who may be struggling and feeling alone, as well as anyone who might be interested in making a donation!

Your donations will help us:

  • Provide a supportive online community and gallery exhibiting photographic work exclusively by persons affected by mental health challenges
  • Produce live exhibition opportunities around the world
  • Build confidence through art sales and positive feedback
  • Create low-cost and free therapeutic photography workshops and groups
  • Raise awareness and fight stigma associated with mental health conditions

 

Announcement 2: Broken Light Collective’s first live exhibit is opening in just a few weeks in NYC!

“FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT: Photography by Broken Light Collective” is going to be a seven-week exhibit at the amazing non-profit Fountain Gallery in NYC (48th and 9th). I curated the show and can tell you that the talent is off the charts!

The opening reception will be held on June 26th from 6-8 pm. Art sales will benefit Fountain Gallery/Fountain House, Broken Light Collective, and the talented artists. I would love to see you there!

Style

New York City street shot from when I visited my sister last June.  

I was photographing people engaged with their technology-  they weren’t paying any attention to me or my camera   I think this woman was trying to get into the shade a bit to see her phone screen, reduce the glare.

Thoughts on style…………decorating, home, fashion, hair, writing-

What’s in style these days?

Have you ever been out of style?  

Did you ever cramp anyone’s style?

Do you know anyone whose style is stuck in another decade?        or maybe their style is making a comeback?

Who decides what’s in style or out of style?

What is  your style?

Nice shot! Interesting questions. Maybe our readers will have some answers. I just go with what I like, at any given time. :)

OOTD – Some time in the 1940s

My grandmother, some time back in the 1940s. Besides being a terrific mother and grandmother, she always had a really good fashion sense. It’s too bad I didn’t inherit it, though she did what she could to help.

Great fashion sense and photo!
