Unsettling Photo Mashups of Children and the Elderly

We know very little about Never Grow Up, a photo series by Ruadh DeLone that caught our eye at Behance this morning. What we do know is that it’s some of the most visually dissonant art we’ve seen in quite a while. DeLone has simply combined images of young children with images of elderly people — resulting in black-and-white pictures of round, baby heads creased with wrinkles and grandparents who appear to have just earned a visit from the tooth fairy. A quick glance through DeLone’s other work reveals a fascination with youth — and medical oddities. See Never Grow Up, and contemplate your own (or perhaps your child’s) mortality, after the jump.
