juno calypso "silhouette II"


Juno Calypso prefers to work totally alone, using herself as the subject so she can fully immerse herself in her seductive pink aesthetic and undertone of horror. Her identity almost always concealed by masks or wigs, she began irreverently calling her character ‘Joyce’, but in fact her persona, whoever she is, taps into the female, the feminine, the loner, the bored, the playful and the sinister in all of us.

Award-winning photographer Juno Calypso captures herself in uncanny staged scenes that are charged with suspense. Frequently assuming the role of her alter ego Joyce, she poses in spaces like honeymoon hotels or mid-century-style suburban homes that suggest bygone eras. Calypso developed this persona while studying photography at the London College of Communication; a year after graduating in 2012, her eerie, sensualself-portraits won the visitor vote at the prestigious Catlin Art Prize. Calypso has quickly established herself for probing images that examine the performance of femininity. She won two of the highest honors for contemporary photography in 2016: the Foam Talent Call and the British Journal of Photography Series Award. Calypso also produces editorial work, photographing celebrities like Billie Elish and Naomi Cambell for publications and fashion brands.
