Juno Calypso and Felicity Hammond have been named the winners of British Journal of Photography’s International Photography Awards 2016.
Chosen from over 1,500 entrants, Juno won the Series Award for her alter ego project Joyce, which we featured back in June and takes place at the Honeymoon Hotel in Pennsylvania. A series of portraits that are meticulously staged and oddly sinister, Juno’s work explores “modern rituals of seduction and the laboured construction of femininity.”
Felicity Hammond was awarded the Single Image Award for Restore to Factory Settings, a large scale photographic collage C-type print. Picking apart the urban landscape, Felicity explores the “economic and social evolutions in London,” a place now overrun with residential and office spaces.
Juno and Felicity will have their work exhibited at TJ Boulting from 25 February 2016 and the pair will also have their work published in the British Journal of Photography.
