ATHENS – Athens Photo World, a nine-day event raising public awareness on the work of photojournalists, opens June 7 at the National Library of Greece on the grounds of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Park, in Athens.

The seven exhibitions and six events, spread over several of the Park’s facilities, showcase the work of Greek and foreign photojournalists, under the central theme is “Daily Life across the World,” and are free to the public. The events also honor the work of the late photojournalist Yannis Behrakis, his rich and award-winning work and his significant contribution to both Greek and international photojournalism.
