‘My Greece’, the Project that Portrays Greek Beauty

Greek Instagramers Events is a team of amateur photographers that organizes photography events. It is a non-profit artistic group, founded by Stavroula Spyrea, George Verdados, and Elli Agiannidi who met while sharing their images on Instagram and, after a while decided, to share their passion for Greece and photography with a wider community.

Greek Instagrammers Events is a virtual place where they meet and exchange knowledge and experiences while also presenting their photographic material.

The team puts together a yearly photo exhibition which is the result of their photography meetings through the year.

Their 4th annual photo exhibition, under the name of #My_Greece, focuses on travel and street photography inspired by the beauty of Greece but also focuses on the human element. A presence that makes pictures vivid and also tells a story.

The outcome of 2017’s exhibition was a photo book, also called “#My_Greece” which includes 270 photos belonging to of the 270 photographers that took part in the exhibition. The book proposes a landscape made of everyday life and beauty with a touch of urban and suburban places in every corner of Greece.

The book can be bought in several Greek bookstores as well as online shops, while the revenues from the sales have been donated to “Kivotos tou Kosmou” (The Ark of the World), a voluntary, non-profit organization for special care and maternal and child protection.

They can be followed on Instagram @gr_events to check their upcoming exhibitions. It is also possible to follow Greek Reporter is on Instagram (@greekreporter).
