Exhibition in Adelaide Commemorates the Evzones Visit to Australia

An exhibition showcasing the official visit of the Evzones, the members of the Greek Presidential Guard, in Australia, is in progress at St. Basil Homes in Adelaide and will remain open to the public until the end of August.

According to a Neos Kosmos news daily report, three Adelaide-based photographers put together a collection of photographs capturing the historic visit of Greece’s highest ranking military guards in April.

Paul Bradshaw, Shane Reid and Katina Rozaklis, followed the nine Evzones and their lieutenant entourage around in Adelaide, and took a series of touching photographs.

The Evzones participated in the events that marked the anniversary of Anzac Day and the 76th anniversary of the Battle of Crete.

The artists, together with the Foundation for Hellenic Studies, have decided to showcase their work during the South Australian Living Artists Festival (SALA).

“Their presence bestowed the Foundation for Hellenic Studies with a sense of great pleasure and honour in being accorded the opportunity to introduce them to our community, to have them participate in significant ceremonies in Adelaide to honor the Anzacs, and to show them our state,” Harry Patsouris, trustee of the Foundation for Hellenic Studies told Neos Kosmos during the official visit.
