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. 

Lena has exhibited her work at galleries and art fairs including The Other Art Fair in London and Idea Generation, London, and received honourable mentions for awards including Prix de la Photographie 2021 and the International Photography Awards 2021.


Her artwork is held in private collections in NYC, LA, Germany, Greece and the UK
