From Chips to Church

Antonios Xalas is originally from a small village in Greece. In the early 60s he moved to Sydney where he opened a popular fish and chip shop in Manly. He is 73 years-of-age, married with two sons. Since 1974, he has been the priest of the Greek Orthodox Church of Resurrection in the hills of Ermoupolis, Syros, which was built in 1870. When asked if  I could go into the church to take a look and snap a few pictures his comment was, “One or two.” On the way out I asked could I snap some photographs of him, his answer was, “Yes, one or two.”
