About The Artwork

Mykonos is a Cycladic Greek island situated in the Aegean sea. In Greek mythology, the island is said to have been the location of the ‘Gigantomachy’, the great battle between Zeus and the Giants and where Hercules was killed. According to the myth, the large rocks all over the island are said to be the petrified corpses of the Giants. Tourism in Mykonos flourished in the early 1960s when it became the favourite hangout for artists. Over the last fifteen years Mykonos has changed dramatically and today, is considered to be one of the top cosmopolitan and luxurious holiday destinations. The way I have photographed Mykonos in the spring is related to memories inhabited by nostalgia. These memories are marks from the years of youth. My visit to the island, a wishful continuation of my journey in time, unfolded hidden lush landscapes and serene picturesque views, almost untouched from time. Through my images I want to inspire the viewers to observe the elements of authenticity, simplicity and beauty, the island has kept. All these can be the cornerstone of an inspiring future.

Lena Konstantakou grew up in Athens, Greece and moved to the UK to study Art & Design and Graphic Design. She worked for more than ten years for magazines and newspapers in London - amongst them the Daily Telegraph newspaper, where she worked as the Art Editor for the company's commercial department. Her photographic vision is an evolutionary journey from the busy London lifestyle to the 'quiet' and more peaceful neighbourhoods by the sea and close to nature. Lena Konstantakou’s ethereal photographs explore the intuitive connection between habitat, existence and wellbeing. Her work has evolved around the notion of how our environments and nature interfere and influence our emothional state. Drawing upon the concept of ‘the ordinary’, she captures imagery that signifies the importance of wonder, appreciation and connection; a celebration of an ordinary life.
