Photobook project “47 / A Life with Cystic Fibrosis” features intimate portraits of individuals afflicted with the disease.
Once again, photography proves how powerful it is as a tool that to help impact the lives of many people. In this case, it’s those who are afflicted by cystic fibrosis (CF).
Just last August 22, British photographer Simon Wiffen launched a Kickstarter project for his photobook, 47 / A Life with Cystic Fibrosis, with the goal of raising awareness on CF and to gather funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust in the UK. It was a simple yet powerful idea: Wiffen took the portraits of 47 individuals aged four to 61 years old afflicted by CF, and placed them side by side with short extracts from the conversations he had with them during the shoots.
