Matej Peljhan is a Slovenian photographer and triathlete. An odd combination, certainly, but what’s odder still is that he’s missing an eye and his right arm. When he was ten years old, he was involved in an accident with some explosives left over from World War II.the incident made a huge impact in his life and led him to create his Little Prince series with Luka. The series features a Luka in a variety of whimsical poses, not unlike the protagonist in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novel. Luka is a 12-year-old boy with muscular dystrophy who can’t walk, dress, or feed himself. While Luka’s movements may be severely limited, his imagination is not. He was the one who came up with the ideas for his poses in the series. He lives and works in in Ljubljana, Slovenia with his wife and their three children.
