Juno Caplyso an international award winning photographers talks for the first time in Bristol in collaboration with ARNOLFINI.
Juno Calypso works across photography, film and installation to performs solitary studies into modern rituals of seduction and the laboured construction of femininity. She is working with self-portraiture, which led to the creation of a character named Joyce. Within elaborately staged large format photographs I draw upon personal experience to perform critical studies into modern rituals of beauty and seduction. In her last series The Honeymoon, exploring the absurdities of female identity and sexuality. For her latest work Juno spent a week alone at a couple’s-only resort in Pennsylvania. The new series was selected by The British Journal of Photography as the winner of it’s 2016 International Photography Award.
