Karamanlis photo exhibition continues to July 29

The Constantine Karamanlis Photograph Exhibition has been a great success since it was inaugurated on June 5 by Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis at the Pireos Street annex of the Benaki Museum, in conjunction with the Constantine G. Karamanlis Foundation.

The exhibition coincides with a symposium to mark the centenary of the birth of the late statesman, former Prime Minister and President of the Hellenic Republic. It is curated by Tassos Sakellaropoulos, designed by Stamatis Zannas and coordinated by Sofia Handaka and Christina Vona, but the heart of the exhibition is the Museum’s Director, Professor Angelos Delivorrias. The catalog was edited by Dimitris Arvanitakis and shows Karamanlis’s life from his schooldays in Proti, Serres, his student days when he worked to support his widowed mother, his early years as a lawyer and his entry into politics as a parliamentary deputy in 1935. Then there are photographs from his terms as a government Minister, Prime Minister and President, both press photographs and family moments.
