What our members say Why I like the Societies: Pro Imagemaker is a good magazine. An article on free software in 2008 encouraged me to use OpenOffice instead of Microsoft Office on my PC. I now use the same package on my iMac as well, saving a considerable sum of money. - Philip P Find out more about the Societies here

Photo Quote: We take language into our minds; we read words in the same internal voice with which we think, remember, pray. But when we look at paintings or photographs, the reverse is true. If the image corresponds to our most intensely personal, yet archetypal, yearnings and memories, we don't take the image in, we move out of ourselves into the image, as though it were another world, a hologram whose forms of light are ghostly angels, or a dream whose physical reality is suggested by what we see on the surface of a canvas or a page. We connect with the image as though we had lost it within our own memories and are now surprised to find it represented outside ourselves, vital and luminous, charged with energy. - Jayne Anne Phillips
