Konstantinos Megalokonomos was born in Izmir (Turkey) and settled in Athens (Greece) after the end of the Greco-Turkish war of 1921-1922. He became involved with photo reporting while he was still attending secondary school. He founded the “Greek Photo News – K. Megalokonomos” agency in 1960. His archive has been preserved; it includes precious material that dates from the interwar period until the late 20th century. He died in 1992.
