13 Perspective | The Little Prince



Today I found a beautiful meeting of reality and art. I mean oh my gosh, this little boy. How touching and poetic is this series entitled, "The Little Prince"?  The boy, Luka suffers from Muscular Dystrophy (which has confined him to a wheelchair) and photographer Matej Peljhan (whom himself suffered injuries at age 10 from some explosive devices, scattered around during the World War II that left him without an arm or eye) set out to create an imaginary world for Luka where he could skateboard, play basketball, even scuba dive.  Things he can't do in real life, things most of us take for granted.  The images speak for themselves.





See more from Matej and Luka's series here.  Via Creative Boom.

These photos are lovely, it was only when I read your commentary that I realised the little boy had a problem. Thank you for sharing them.

some of the most touchingly, sad photos I've ever seen. What a beautiful gift to give a sick boy, but how heart wrenching that he has to endure a life of debilitating illness.

I love these pictures. The innocence of them, it's so touching. And I absolutely adore how someone took some time and made Luka's day.
