This stunning photographic exhibition of Greece’s Presidential Guards will be on display at the Holy Monastery of St Nectarios, Croydon Park
“I’m excited to bring ‘The Evzones Collection’ to the city of churches. For me, a memorable moment in Adelaide was in 2019 when the Greek Presidential Guard (Evzones), for the first time in history, stood guard and marched with the Epitaphio at St. George Church on Good Friday,” Mr Bourdaniotis said.
The exhibition photographer and producer has also used the exhibition as a platform to give back to various community groups.
So far, ‘The Evzones Collection’ has raised $19,850.00 for local schools and charitable causes.
During the four day exhibition in Adelaide, attendees will have the chance to bid on an exhibition photo, with proceeds going to the Central Philoptochos of the Archdiocesan District of Adelaide.
Dignitaries attending the formal opening include Hon David Pisoni MP, Minister for Innovation and Skills, representing the Government; Hon Tom Koutsantonis MP, Member for West Torrens, representing the Leader of the Opposition; Hon John Dawkins MLC, President, Legislative Council of SA, and Mrs Sheila Dawkins; Ms Andrea Michaels MP, Member for Enfield; Hon Geoff Brock MP, Member for Frome; Ms Mary Couros, Acting Lord Mayor, representing The Right Honourable the Lord Mayor of Adelaide; Sandy Verschoor and the City of Adelaide; Mr Steve Georganas MP, Federal Member for Adelaide; Lieutenant Colonel Dave Edmonds, Commander 9th Brigade, and Mrs Sophie Edmonds; Mr George Psiachas, Consul General of Greece in Adelaide; Acting Assistant Commissioner Lynden Dunstan, representing the Police Commissioner Mr Grant Stevens; Mayor Angela Evans, City of Charles Sturt; Mrs Adriana Christopoulos, Board Member, South Australian Multicultural and Ethnic Affairs Commission;
The exhibition is included in the calendar of the National Committee for the 200 years of Greek Independence 1821-2021, under the auspices of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia.
