The Little Prince – Photos of a Boy With Muscular Dystrophy Living His Imagination

Luka is a 12-year-old boy who suffers from Muscular Dystrophy, a disease that causes the body to get weaker over time. His everyday activities are limited because of his lack of physical movement, but he is able to use his fingers which allows him to operate his electric wheelchair as well as slowly draw in his notebook, where his imagination has no limits.

After meeting this boy and learning about what he has always wanted to do, photographer Matej Peljhan now helps him live those dreams by creating images that give Luka the feeling of being able to do the things he can’t. Using layered colored sheets and everyday household items, the photos are shot from above and capture Luka’s fun personality as he explores his imaginary world.

You can view these images of The Little Prince and more of Matej’s work on his website.
