English photographer and artist Juno Calypso stages self-portraits in her latest series 'What to do with a million years'. Calypso inhabited an underground Las Vegas bunker, built 26 feet below ground in the late 1960s at the height of the Cold War by Jerry Henderson, a CEO of Avon Cosmetics. The series explores the boundaries between reality and fiction and the result is as hypnotising as it is creepy. A must see.
