Luca is a 12 year old boy who suffers from muscular dystrophy, a disease that over time makes his body weaker and weaker. Lucas only has control over his fingers, and relies on the help of nurses and caretakers to move him around and help take are of him. Luca’s physical incapability is not an obstacle for his wild and playful imagination. Slovenian photographer Matej Peljhan Matej created a heartwarming photo series called “The Little Prince“, where the star is Luca. According to Luca’s wishes, the boy was photographed as if in motion, revealing his playfulness and a bit of mischief. The photos were taken from an aerial view, and modeled to look like the boy is riding on a skateboard, playing basketball, dancing, and even flying. This inspiring photo story shows dreams do come true, even if it takes a little bit of art to make it happen.
