Cuba is Alive in Lena Konstantakou Photography Exhibit, London, Until October 3

Most of the exhibits staged at Idea Generation Gallery in London that I have mentioned so far had a rock music connection to them.

Their Fall 2010 line-up offers different flavors.

My favorite probably, Cuba is Alive features black and white slices of life on the island by photographer Lena Konstantakou...


Here's a bit of background on the artist:

"A London based graphic designer and photographer, Lena Konstantakou has worked for a wide cross section of British and Greek newspapers and publications. Having felt stymied by her day to day commercial practice, Lena recently decided to return to her creative roots - exploring her original love of photography for the pure joy and freedom of it.

This exhibition will feature a selection of Lena's photography of Cuba - documenting a country and nationality full of exhuberance, energy, passion and frivolity - a subject matter mirroring the artist's restored love of photography."

Cuba is Alive has a short run from September 29 to October 3, 2010. Event is Free.

Don't miss it.

So I asked Vittorio Castellani who put the event on my path for the English version of this Street Food Festival. Here it is, as you can see, Vittorio was not stingy on details: "The 6th International Street Food Festival will be held...
