Note 

I was hospitalised for fifteen days at the AHEPA, Thessaloniki's General Teaching Hospital. The diagnosis: pneumonia and empyema; that is, pus-filled lungs. 

The treatment: surgery. 

The gaze: eighteen pictures. 

In medical terminology, Personal Anamnesis denotes a patient’s medical history. For a photographer, it means the itinerary of his gaze through the domain of darkness. And when you look at darkness straight on, it's somewhat tamed.
