The Little Prince: Boy with muscular dystrophy lives dreams through pictures

The Little Prince: Boy with muscular dystrophy lives dreams through pictures, Twelve year old Luka has dreams of playing sports, dancing, riding a bike and even diving. Luka has only been able to do these things through his imagination because he has muscular dystrophy. That is until photographer Matej Peljhan took these dreams a step closer to reality, as per GrindTV on April 23, 2013.

Luka uses a wheelchair and everyday tasks such as eating and getting dressed require assistance. Peljhan, who is also a psychiatrist, explained that Luka is only able to weakly make tiny movements with his fingers.

Peljhan recalled one of his conversations with Luka expressing his wish to see himself in a photo "walking around and doing all sorts of mischief." Initially Peljhan felt it would be impossible to make this wish come true, but later realized he needed to change his perspective.

Using a white sheet and props, Peljhan strategically posed Luka is several lifelike scenes. The photos were taken from above to make it look more realistic.

Luka is seen playing basketball, spinning on his head while break-dancing, climbing stairs, riding a skateboard and even diving with little socks used for fish. There is also one where Luka is being lifted by a red balloon and leaving his wheelchair behind, something he also probably has dreamed of doing.
