Effy Alexakis to launch new book on the Greek Australian experience in Canberra


Renowned photographer, Effy Alexakis, is set to hold the first major Australian launch of her new book Effy Alexakis: Forty Photographs – A Year at a Time at the Hellenic Club of Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory.

The limited edition, fine art publication will be officially launched at the Club on Sunday, March 5 at 3pm in the Apollo Room.

During the launch, Alexakis and historian Leonard Janiszewski will be ‘in conversation’ with Justice Chrissa Loukas-Karlsson talking about the new book, its insights into the Greek Australian experience, their ongoing documentary project, and how their life’s work has impacted upon their personal experiences. 

In the new book, Alexakis accessed her vast archive on the Greek Australian experience and selected one contemporary image to represent each year since 1982 in order to reveal the changing face of Greek Australians.

A new 2022 revised reprint of Greek Cafés & Milk Bars of Australia will also be available for purchase at the event.

Full event details:

  • Where: Hellenic Club of Canberra, Apollo Room, 1 Matilda Street, Woden, ACT.
