The notable photographic work of Greece’s Presidential Guards by Greek Australian photographer Nick Bourdaniotis, will launch this Friday March 26 in Melbourne, as part of the many international cultural initiatives celebrating Greece’s 200th bicentennial anniversary since its 1821 War of Independence.
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 anniverary since our Independence,” said Mr Bourdaniotis.
The collection was largely inspired from Mr 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, that led to Mr Bourdaniotis’ continuation of his work with unprecedented access to all aspects of the Greek Presidential Guard.
The Melbourne launch follows a successful national launch in Canberra and is open to the public.
