The Evzones Collection by Nick Bourdaniotis is a photographic exhibition about the Evzones, Greek Presidential Guard, both in Greece and Australia, where esteemed photographer Nick Bourdaniotis is granted rare, behind-the-scenes access to the daily lives of the Evzones for historical, archival, media and television purposes.
Under the patronage of H.E. the President of the Hellenic Republic, Ms Katerina Sakellaropoulou, this Exhibition was shown in Greece at the Athens War Museum for the 25th of March celebrations in 2023.
It is the first time that an exhibition of Greeks in the Diaspora of this kind was displayed at the Athens War Museum.
The Evzones Collection by Nick Bourdaniotis donated the entire Athens exhibition to the Presidency of the Hellenic Republic on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, during an intimate viewing at the Greek Presidential Guard Headquarters (Garrison) Athens, Greece.
The exhibition had its first Australian public exhibition in 2021. It was an integral part of the official national program for the 200 years of celebration of Greece’s emancipation from the Ottoman Empire in 1821, under the auspices of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church of Australia.
The exhibition was also granted a personal endorsement from the Head of Garrison at the time, Mr George Besiris, and more recently by the new Head of Garrison, Mr Ilias Karmiris and the Greek Presidential Guard, as well as the Hellenic General Staff of National Defense, The Consulate Generals of Greece in Melbourne / Sydney / Adelaide, The Ambassador of Greece to Australia and the 200 Years of Hellenism Committee.
Planning is underway to exhibit this exhibition in the USA, Canada and the UK. Various exhibitions are still planned to be displayed around Australia.
Be prepared to fall in love with the strength, solidarity and mystique that is the Evzones.
Nick’s art uniquely evokes Hellenic pride with images that have set a new standard and been published worldwide.
