Nick Bourdaniotis’ Evzones Collection launches today in Melbourne

·

Following his successful national launch in Canberra last month, Nick Bourdaniotis will be launching ‘The Evzones Collection’ in Melbourne today, Friday March 26.

The event is part of the many international cultural initiatives celebrating Greece’s 200th bicentennial anniversary since its 1821 War of Independence.

The exhibition gets it’s name after the historical elite light infantry and mountain units of the Greek Army which today serve as members of the country’s Greek Presidential Guard.

The exhibition is hosted and organised in conjunction with the 2021 Victorian Bicentenary Committee and the Organisational Council for Greek National Day at Oakleigh Grammar Convention Centre. The exhibition will be attended by political and community dignitaries including the Consul General of Greece in Melboune Emmanuel Kakavelakis, Bishop Ezekiel, Chairman of 2021 Victorian Committee Tony Tsourdalakis among others.

“I am fortunate to be able to share my work on Greece’s Presidential Guard especially now with the 200 years anniversary since our Independence” said Bourdaniotis.

The collection was largely inspired from Bournaniotis’ first contact with members of the Greek Presidential Guard when he was appointed official photographer of the Evzones tour of Australia in 2016, at the invitation of the Hellenic Club of Sydney.

Since then, his work impressed both the public and officials, leading to the photographer continuing his work with unprecedented access to all aspects of the Greek Presidential Guard.

Event Details:
Melbourne: Saturday March 27 – Sunday April 04 at Oakleigh Grammar Conference Center. Address: 77/81 Willesden Rd, Oakleigh, Victoria, 3166.
