About

“Taking over the world one heart-shaped bath at a time? Now that’s a revolution to get behind.” Nell Frizzell, The Guardian

The Honeymoon Suite is possibly Juno Calypso’s most startling photographic mission.  Dressed in lurid pastels and a wig, Calypso’s one-woman tour of honeymoon hotels defies the typical perceptions of gender and identity through an edgy prism of wit, humour and courageous vulnerability.

Since 2011 Calypso has used a fictional alter ego named Joyce to “reenact the private underlife of a woman consumed by the laboured construct of femininity”[1].   The Honeymoon Suite is a continuation of the ‘Joyce’ series. In the Spring of 2015 Calypso spent a week posing as a travel writer at a couples-only honeymoon resort in Pennsylvania USA.  She was granted keys for every suite in the resort where she photographed herself alone as Joyce.
