Broken Light: A Photography Collective

For any who stumble here inspiration and exploration can be found @:

Broken Light: A Photography Collective


“Broken Light’s main goal is to create a safe and accepting environment where photographers of all levels who are affected by mental health issues can display their work, as well as inspire one another to keep going and keep creating, despite the dark or scary places in which they may find themselves.”


You are invited to create art for the site or come visit whenever you may be feeling low, hopeless, or just need something positive on which to focus. You will see, and show others, that you are not alone, no matter how you feel. If you have a mental health issue yourself, or have friends or family who do, then you qualify to be a contributor. You may also contribute if you are someone who helps other people who may be struggling, such as a volunteer, humanitarian, or mental health professional. See the submission tab for details.”





New modern, modernist art revival

Snowden’s  NSA “disclosures have fuelled debates over mass surveillancegovernment secrecy, and the balance between national security and information privacy.” Perhaps they will lead to policy reform and more government oversight as though some actual democratic process had begun. Has a democratic process begun? Is there a lesser democratic evil?

Glenn Greenwald told Brent Bambury, host of CBC Radio’s Day 6.

“There are many, many, many more significant documents about Canadian surveillance and partnership with the NSA that will be reported and, I think, will be quite enlightening for the people of Canada.”
Is Canada a democratic country?
Is there a need for a new modern, (modernist) art revival capable of articulating what major media outlets will not?
