The Evzones Collection by Nick Bourdaniotis has been making waves around the world. It showcases the elite unit of the Presidential Guard, the Evzones, through stunning photography. As the collection continues its journey, its next stop will be in Brisbane, Australia, at The Greek Club on March 25th, and then again on April 5th, 6th and 7th, 2024.

This special date holds great significance as it marks Greece's Independence Day. The exhibition will be displayed to a select group of dignitaries and invited members of the community under the auspices of the Honorary Consul of Greece in Queensland, Mr George D. Mastrocostas, after he has extended a warm invitation to the Evzones Collection team. This will highlight the importance of preserving Greek heritage and celebrating the country's independence.

A further exhibition will be held to the general public at The Greek Club, Brisbane, on the 5, 6 and 7 April under the auspices of The Greek Orthodox Community of St George Brisbane. This exhibition will finally make its way to Brisbane as it was postponed twice due to the previous years of the pandemic and lockdowns.

The exhibition's popularity has continued to grow, following successful showings at the Athens War Museum and the Garrison of the Presidential Guard in 2023. Nick Bourdaniotis' donation of the entire exhibition to the Presidency under the patronage of H.E. Ms. Katerina Sakellaropoulou further solidified the collection's significance and importance.
