Le Petit Prince, Photo Series Imagines an Ordinary Life for a Boy with Muscular Dystrophy

Le Petite Prince by Matej Peljhan

In the heartwarming photo series “Le Petit Prince,” 12-year-old Lukas is depicted leading the active life of an ordinary boy: playing basketball, skateboarding, and so on—all activities he cannot perform in real life due to muscular dystrophy. The series was created by Matej Peljhan, a Slovenian photographer and psychologist who specializes in photographic therapy. Peljhan focuses on people with special needs in his professional work due to his own life experience—he lost an eye and an arm in a childhood accident and endured years of rehabilitation as a youth.
