Luka, 12, can’t ride a skateboard, go diving, shoot a basketball, stand on one hand while dancing, or even climb a set of stairs, but he can certainly picture himself doing these things, thanks to a clever photographer in Slovenia who made a dream come true.
Luka is stricken with muscular dystrophy and is unable to do the most basic tasks of everyday life, such as washing, dressing, and eating. From his wheelchair, he can only dream of playing sports or participating in other outdoor activities.
“The only thing he is physically capable of are tiny, yet extremely weak movements with his fingers,” award-winning amateur photographer Matej Peljhan, who is a psychologist at Luka’s school, told Huffington Post.
But Luka’s imagination is very much alive, and it prompted him to ask Peljhan if there was a way to put him into photos that show him doing different activities. Luka dreamed of seeing himself skateboarding, diving, playing basketball, and dancing.
