Using photography to free a boy from his wheelchair

Luka is 12 years old and has muscular dystrophy, which usually keeps him confined to his wheelchair. But thanks to photographer and friend Matej Peljhan, Luka is finding physical freedom in a unique, exciting way (even if it is imaginary).

Using sheets laid out on the floor for background and ordinary items from around the house for props, Peljhan photographs Luka from above in all sorts of situations that his disease prevents him from experiencing.

Check him out as he plays basketball, breakdances, and more…
