Photographer Turns Dreams Of A Boy With Muscle Dystrophy, Into Reality
Muscular dystrophy is a disorder that weakens a person’s muscles over time. Those who have the disease gradually lose the ability to do things people normally take for granted—such as walking, playing basketball, dancing and even swimming.
In his series entitled ‘The Little Prince’, Slovenian photographer Matej Peljhan captures a 12-year-old boy named Luka—who suffers from muscle dystrophy—‘doing things’ he can’t do because of the disorder.
Created by laying cloth and everyday objects on the ground, and photography trickery, Peljhan helped Luka turn his dreams (and drawings from a notebook) into reality.
These poignant pictures also send a message about the disorder, and remind viewers to appreciate life and live it to the fullest.
