    "Joanne's originality and creativity coupled with her use of composition and perspective is of such a standard that her images are a visual banquet. Add to that a twist of humour, artistic flare and sense of social documentary and you have the whole package. She is a rare diamond and without doubt my favourite photographer on flickr."

    "Pockets. Mechanical. Glasses hiding themselves in your backyard, spying on you when you aren't looking. Who's glasses? Dr. J's images bright my puddle. Solar power my periodic-yesterday. Hopping on an mathematic oxen when I view this lovely woman's intensely-poetic imagery. I cling and I release. I do it again, subsiding. I wish we could meet, or that she could be a hostess or me her hostess or perhaps collaborate. I've always wanted to bend two wormholes in space to make certain people's cities become twins with my own. She's one of them.

    Please stream this stream thoroughly like you were a bright silvery-minnow. If you're not a bright silvery-something, you will be afterwards. I know I always am. My eyes like turnip-arcs.

    Please keep shining. I don't get a chance to visit you often, but I always do, more-so than you realize, even if my cyber-mouth doesn't allow me to comment.

    Shine on, you beautiful lampshade of magic!"

    (deaf mute) says:

    "Joanne is a thinking person's image-maker. Time and time again, her photos stop me in my tracks, leading me to question my own psychology as well as hers. There's barely a pixel in her photostream that isn't loaded with meaning, be it part of a psychosexual drama posed by models, a philosophical quotation-cum-qualification, or a macro of a dog's arse.
    If Flickr is the new Algonquin, Joanne is the new Dotty Parker, putting others in the shade with not just incisive wit, but also visual metaphors that charm and enthral. This is a stream for the open-minded aesthete, the literate, and the insane. If you think you understand everything about these pictures, you're not looking hard enough. It is, however, very rewarding to try.

    P.S. I lied about the dog's arse."

    "I can't help to say something about Dr Joanne: long time ago I haven't found something that touched me so profoundly. A lot of people do a great work...but we are so imbued by thousands of images, there's so much stuff, that it's very difficult to find something reaaally great. And that's Dr Joanne's work. I admire it, as many people do...It's outstanding in the best way. I'm trying to find my way in producing worthy images in different techniques...She has done it sooo well!!!"

    "Dr. Joanne is probably my favourite photographer at Flickr. Her technique can keep up with her concepts and she masters every new project she attempts. Her images knock me out, entice me, disgust me and sometimes slip me the tongue. Thoroughly satisfying and endlessly inspiring."

    "A digital visit to this Dr.'s office is a must for anyone who needs a strong dose of optic inspiration and imagination. Her erotic, engaging and poignant "Sex and Psychology" is just one of many examples of her wonderful visual curiosity, artistic expertise and masterfully evocative depiction of the human condition. Woven with a creative, non-judgemental eye and a keen sense of balance, her's is work worthy of high praise and intelligent commentary."

    "i adore Joanne because she is REAL, AUTHENIC, GENUINE plus all the other synonyms left related to the TRUTH. looking at her photos is like having second life experience, not only one's own but one's own delux. Joanne is so human, that it's simply unforgivable. in the world of progress 24/7 we need to remember about what we are and where we come from, what are our roots, nature and basic instincts. that's what makes Joanne an artist - she remembers about human_brain_body intimacy and passes the memory (knowledge too) on. dzieki, Aska."

    di Cinarca says:


    Dans la forteresse tiède de tes propos scrutateurs
    J'ai choisi une place de rêve.
    Si mes paroles n'ont pas de sens,
    Comme l'égyptologue forçant l'entrée des pyramides,
    Décryptant l'évidence des hiéroglyphes
    Ponctués d'oiseaux aux grotesques postures,
    Un discours intérieur résonne cependant,
    Dans ces pans de murs écartelés
    Tes lèvres perverses viennent apposer
    Le baiser de Narcisse,
    La pluie, par ondes concentriques
    Trouble ton image
    Pour récuser mes énigmatiques pictogrammes.

    __ Guidu Antonietti di Cinarca __"

    * Honest * says:

    Her originality astounds me.
    Her portraits intrigue me.
    Her thoughts amaze me.

    She is a true artist.
    Not enough words could describe her.
    When i think of her photographs i remember a quote by Ansel Adams:-
    "There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer."
    Even if she is not in the shot, her touch is always there.
    Much respect to DrJoanne."

    "If want to be assasinated by a woman, this is the one i want to take my last breath away, hitting me and cutting my body with her camera.
    So exquisite and delicious death, that's what i feel with her photography.
    Then i'll go to her heaven wich is full of surrealism and strange things that are so powerfull and some kind of beautiful to look at. She's defenetly one of best womans i've seen around here doing interesting stuff. All my congratulations and blood to her."

    "Dr Joanne, you are as mind altering as the Moulin Rouge absinthe I discovered in your stream. Your outstanding images outclass those contained in multimillion dollar Baz Lehrman movies. Me I'm just a dork with camera trying to make fun of life but you, DrJ,.. you are the mistress of a synaptic visual, verbal, wonderful, witty, sensuous, all engaging experience here on flickr...and no I cannot say any of this in Polish, muzch to my schzame!

    As admin to the group, Sex and Psychology, Jo you have added a new and much needed dimension to flickr groups - so all go participate, learn and enjoy.

    Jo your creativity seems to have an unfathomable and unending depth that continues to amuse and amaze me. We should all be mindful of your feminine teeth!

    Thanks for being here Jo, and let's celebrate life and good sense today and every day."

    "Do these images make you think?
    Do these images excite and entice?
    Do these images take your breath away?
    Do these images horrify?
    Do these images jab your emotional core?

    Do these images make you thankful that you have eyes to see, and a soul to experience the raw, sensual nature of human existence?


    That's exactly what she wants.

    Thank God for it."

    "Joanne is a master of charging straight through the eyes of her viewers, right into the pit of their emotions. This is a skill that is rare. I have visions of her work that never leave me. Each photo eludes to an entire story. There is always room to elaborate on her suggestions of each photo. I LOVE this woman's photostream. There is not another one like it that I've found around flickr. She is in a word....brilliant."

    "This Joanne, Dr. Person, has some kind of extraordinary talent. Her images reveal an intense curiosity and creativity to explore intensely personal and provocative is relatively easy to create images that are "pretty", "well composed", "interesting", etc., but The Joanne, Dr. Person, brings an intelligence, a consciousness to her images, and the talent to make the camera do what that consciousness intends....bravo gurl!"

    "Dr J is probably my favourite photographer on flickr. Her witty photographs and scathing titles rarely fail to bring a smile (a sick smile but a smile nevertheless) to my lips. Joanne is a latter day Cindy Sherman, very much on par with the Masters of Photography. Buy her prints quickly if she should someday open a gallery. They would be a phenomal investment."
