Matej Peljhan - The Little Prince

Slovenian photographer Matej Peljhan helps the imagination of a a boy stricken with muscular dystrophy come alive by creating this series of heartwarming images entitled "The Little Prince".
Twelve year-old Luka is wheelchair bound and his movements are limited to mostly his fingers.
Muscular dystrophy  is a cruel degenerative disease which will make him weaker and weaker over time.
Luka is now able to explore a world that's beyond the confines of his wheelchair
The images were created without the help of Photoshop, using only coloured sheets and household objects
Cleverly placed ping-pong balls and socks make the perfect undersea dreamscape
The idea was implemented when during a conversation between Matej and Luka , the latter said he would like to see himself in pictures, getting up to mischief.

I saw this on a news site last week and was so touched by the story. Just goes to show you that with a little imagination, we can dream big, right?
