47 / A Life With Cystic Fibrosis: New photography book explores the reality of living with cystic fibrosis.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) affects more than 10,400 people in the UK, but the daily challenges faced by those with the condition remain relatively unknown. 47 / A Life With Cystic Fibrosis is a new photography book which aims to change that.
Cystic Fibrosis Trust Response
“Simon’s intimate portraits give a unique insight into the lives of some of the 10,400 people in the UK living with cystic fibrosis (CF). This book beautifully captures multiple voices and reveals the reality of living with a condition that shortens life. Although there is no cure for CF, advances in research are helping people to live longer. However, as these stories attest, CF remains a daily challenge.”
– Anne Shinkwin, Director of Fundraising at The Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
