I think this is an inspiring and uplifting photographic essay of a young boy with muscular dystrophy, allowing him to visualize himself in situations that he would physically love to be in. I am also well aware that some may also find it distasteful.
This photo essay was complied by photographer Matej Peljhan who photographed 12 year old Luka, a sufferer of muscular dystrophy to create some really exciting and imaginative images, depicting him doing things that he unfortunately cannot physically but mentally he so wants to. The photographer spent a long time with Luka and it was during those conversations that he discovered how Luka would like to visualise himself, getting up to mischief, tricks, like many young boys.
These are not mobile images and they were created non-digitally using sheets, props, and backdrops and shooting from above as Luka posed on the ground. Luka was fully in agreement to these images being taken and his sense of humor shines throughout. I find this an inspiring project and it would be great to see other similar ones rolled out.
Photography is therapeutic in so many ways, to so many people, and this is just another way of demonstrating that.
