Robert Indiana (*1928) has created some of the world’s most immediately recognizable works of art. Filled with intensely personal combinations of universal symbols—numbers and letters, stars and wheels—they are most readily associated with the Pop art movement.


In two series of photographic portraits, four students from the Design department of the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences document the lives of eight people with cystic fibrosis.
Initially a university assignment, this project took on great emotional import for the students who addressed the issue with sensitivity and empathy, while retaining the necessary professional detachment.
This book is thus a contemporary social documentation, and includes an essay about the illness and the eight people portrayed. There is also short glossary giving medical information and explaining terminology.
