Freed from his wheelchair by the magic of photography

“Black canvas: A world of opportunity was opened up to Luka, using just these coloured sheets”

Twelve-year-old Luka suffers from muscular dystrophy – a cruel degenerative disease which confines him to a wheelchair and will make him weaker and weaker over time.

But with these beautiful pictures, entitled ‘The Little Prince’, friend and photographer Matej Peljhan has allowed him to explore an imaginary world where he can shoot a basketball, climb stairs and even perform a handstand.

Amazingly, the images did not require any digital trickery, Matej simply used coloured sheets and carefully placed objects and took the aerial pictures from above.
