Following its successful exhibition in Melbourne last week, the stunning photographic exhibition of Greece’s Presidential Guards in ‘The Evzones Collection’ by Nick Bourdaniotis, will now be exhibited in Adelaide during the ANZAC day weekend.

More than 700 people attended the exhibition in Melbourne which was hosted by Oakleigh Grammar in conjunction with the 2021 Victorian Bicentenary Committee and the Organisational Council for Greek National Day celebrations.

Exhibition photographer and producer Mr Nick Bourdaniotis has also used the exhibition as a platform to give back to various community groups.

He has auctioned off prints to raise money for local schools and charitable causes such as Agapi Care.

Eirini Alligiannis, the curator of the exhibition across Australia, stated: “Most people attending had such a love for Greece and coming to experience this exhibition bought tears to many and overwhelming emotions.”

Adelaide will now have the opportunity to see this beautiful labour of love.

Mr Bourdaniotis spent years “marching” side by side with the Evzones and captured their spirit and tradition in a way, that not only Greeks are proud of, but all Australians can identify with the shared values and principles represented.
