p>See Mykonos Through the Eye of an Acclaimed Greek Photographer, The Cut, April 2018

Image: Sculpture in the National Archaeological Museum, Athens by Nikolaos Kaltsas, kaponeditions.gr Mykonos Muse by Lizy Manola (Assouline). Located in the Cyclades and surrounded by the blue-green water of the Aegean sits whitewashed, windmill-strewn Mykonos. This ancient island and those surrounding it, mythologized as the bodies of gods felled by Hercules in antiquity, are older than legend and have played host to countless cultures for millennia. At forty square miles and boasting a population of only ten thousand, the ‘Ibiza of Greece’ has become prized for gorgeous architecture, welcoming and open-minded locals, and fantastic beaches. With such names as ‘Paradise’ and ‘Super Paradise,’ the sands of these shores have captured the imaginations and hearts of industry titans, artists, and party-goers alike from all around the globe, marking it as a stable cosmopolitan destination and as a paramount ‘it’ haven of the jet-set circuit. This book chronicles the culture and society that has defined Mykonos over the last century — from its days as a hideout for such luminaries and elites as Le Corbusier and Antonis Benakis to its moment as a sanctuary for the gay community, to its predominant party scene — all the while indulging the reader with the ruins and myths hidden there. Its Greek author Lizy Manola is an acclaimed documentary photographer and owner of a summer house in Mykonos who has already published another two books with Assouline, with this one becoming an instant classic! Additional contributions have been made by Rachel Howard and Michael Skafidas. This book is now regarded as a quintessential intro to the ‘Island of the Winds!’ Image: Athens Riviera by Stephanie Artarit, assouline.com You are lately working on projects that are mostly focusing on worship and religion. Is that coming from an increased interest in spirituality, or are these areas clear indicators of authentic culture and make for great documentary photography themes? The candles were created with the intention of going deeper into telling the story of six destinations: Mykonos, Tulum, Marrakech, Ibiza, Gstaad and the Moon. For each getaway, the Assouline family reflected on memories and personal associations that resulted in unique yet coordinated fragrances.
