Photographic Exhibition – The Greek Orthodox Cathedrals and Churches of London

From the 4 until the 7 September there was a great photographic exhibition in North London (Dugdale Centre, Thomas Hardy House) with a unique theme, The Greek Orthodox Cathedrals and Churches of London.

There are 23 Greek Orthodox Cathedrals and Churches in London. However, the photographer immortalised not only the buildings and the icons with his camera, but also the people, whether they were priests, chanters, helpers, or faithful who were present during the Divine Liturgy.

Alexios Gennaris who is the exhibition’s photographer, visited and photographed all 23 churches. This endeavour took him exactly one year to complete, from January to December 2015. This exhibition was organised by Alexios Gennaris and James Neophytou (Exhibition Producer).

On a personal note, I would like to thank Alexi for his great work and for including a picture of myself, whilst chanting at All Saints Greek Orthodox Cathedral, Camden Town.

For those who missed this exhibition, do not worry. There are more photographic exhibitions to follow:
