Greek Australian photographer Nick Bourdaniotis has donated the entire Athens exhibition of ‘The Evzones Collection’ to the Presidency of the Hellenic Republic.

The Evzones Collection first went on display at the War Museum in Athens, Greece in March this year. The exhibition was the first time photographs of Greece’s Presidential Guard taken by a Greek from the diaspora went on display at the museum.

The exhibition was under the patronage of Greece’s President, Katerina Sakellaropoulou, and included photographs of the Evzones’ visits to the Australian cities of Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide for commemoration events such as ANZAC Day and OXI Day.

Mr Bourdaniotis’ donation of the Athens exhibition was announced during a viewing ceremony on Tuesday, December 19 at the Greek Presidential Guard Headquarters in Athens, Greece.

President Sakellaropoulou was present at the viewing ceremony and was taken on a guided tour of The Evzones Collection by Mr Bourdaniotis.

The collection will now be on permanent display in the Presidential Palace and the headquarters of the Presidential Guard (Evzones). It will embark on tours and prestigious events of the presidency across Greece and the world.
