London-based photographer Juno Calypso has an on-going self portrait series titled ‘Joyce I & II’ in which she explores feminine angst and beauty.
Calypso transforms herself into familiar caricatures of a submissive secretary, a bored receptionist, and a suburban housewife set against a suffocating pastel backdrop.
A quiet desperation and emptiness pervades the images, which hint at the high standards of perfection and beauty that women are expected to achieve.
View her photos below.
