Meet Joyce, the bizarre alter-ego of London-based artist Juno Calypso. Joyce lives in a world of tacky finger buffets and unfulfilling desk jobs that take place in environments lacquered with muted pastel shades. She has everything a gal could wish for but just can’t seem to manage a smile. Juno created Joyce as a means of exploring constructed and societally enforced femininity, placing her within these familiar, but alien surroundings to mirror her own feelings about the pressures of womanhood. It’s a tricky subject tackled with real photographic flair, and with tongue always firmly in cheek.
