AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHS OF 12 YEAR OLD BOY SUFFERING FROM MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY – Little Luke, 12, suffers from one of the world’s most dilapidation diseases that over time will continue to dissolve his muscles preventing him from moving around at all.
It is, without doubt, heart-wrenching to witness the cruelty of the disease and yet a friend and photographer, Matej Peljhan decided to give Luke a rather unusual gift.
Matej, without using any trick photography, photographed Luke in a number of positions that depict him running, swimming, skate-boarding and a lot more. The collection of photographs, title ‘Litter Prince’ have taken the internet by storm as they continue to be shared across the social networks.
Matej captured the imagines using simple items, coloured paper and a white sheet and it was designed purely to bring a little joy to a boy who spends his entire time wheelchair bound.
Luke’s condition only allows for very basic movement which is limited to just tiny movements of his fingers. This limited movement does allow Luke to operate his electric wheelchair but he is fully dependent on his parents for basic daily activates that we take for granted, such as eating, washing and even dressing.
Matej remarked that Luke is a real fighter, has an incredible mental attitude and is great fun to be around due to his wonderful personality.
Below are the rest of the photographs titled “Little Prince”. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have and don’t forget – share these through your social networks – this is the sort of thing that will make us all know just how fortunate we are and how one little boy remains so positive and happy despite his disability.
I hope you enjoyed all these wonderful photographs as much as I did. Don’t forget… share!
