Grandchildren Transform Their Elders Into Superhumans
Design student puts a fresh perspective on ageism with this excellent photoshoot.
It’s all too easy to assume that just because someone is passed a certain age, they are also past their prime. Design Academy Eindhoven student Yoni Lefevre set out to challenge this perception with a new photo series that shows just how amazing grandparents can be through the eyes of a child.
Lefevre asked four children to draw pictures of their grandparents, which resulted in crayon and color pencil drawings of superheroes, not old and useless shells of their former self. Anne, 10, drew her grandfather with 10 amazing octopus-like arms, who’s simultaneously playing soccer, fishing, raking, ironing, and feeding his pets.
