Luka, 12, can’t ride a skateboard, go diving, shoot a basketball, stand on one hand while breakdancing, or even climb a set of stairs, but he can certainly picture himself doing these things, thanks to a clever photographer in Slovenia and Luka's parents 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.
But Luka’s imagination is very much alive, and it prompted him to push his parents 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 breakdancing.
So a photographer put his own imagination to work. Posing Luka in various positions on a white sheet on the ground, creating scenes around him, and taking photos from above, photos that make it look as if Luka is in motion.
