In relation to hybrid-genre, and memoir.

TO CONSIDER:

Q: What do we do with that which confines us?
A: Tilt the axis, create a new plane of perspective, a new form, a new set of rules–a separate gravity. Reframe. Again, again.

This is Luka.

“Luka suffers from muscular dystrophy, a disease that causes his body to become weaker and weaker over time.

Due to the degenerative disease, Luka is unable to do even the most basic of everyday activities such as washing himself, dressing, and eating. His physical capability is mostly limited to tiny movements of his fingers, which allow him to move about in his electric wheelchair. He is also able to hold a colored pen, with which he can slowly turn his imagination into drawings in a notebook.

Slovenia photographer Matej Peljhan has a touching series of photographs titled The Little Prince, which stars a 12-year-old boy named Luka. The images show the boy exploring an imaginary world created by laying colored sheets and household objects on the ground. Peljhan created the images to give Luka the feeling of being able to do things he can’t.”
