About Nick Bourdaniotis

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and in that case, the work of Nick Bourdaniotis, the Director of Photography for Greek City Times, is worth millions.

Through his lens, he has captured the feeling and passion we all have inside of us for our Greek heritage. That strong love and emotion we can’t describe in words.

And now, for the first time, Nick has put together his favourite photos in an exhibition called “The Evzones Collection by Nick Bourdaniotis”.

The Presidential Guard, Evzones, is the epitome of bravery and freedom, honouring the heroes thousands of years on, who fought and sacrificed for the land on which they stand.
