Giving grandparents a super hip makeover, German photographer Linda Dajana Kr├╝ger gives the nostalgically sweet image of grandma and grandpa a surprising and amusing jolt in this funny photo series.

Decking out sweet grandparents into funky gangster grandparents, this funny photo series 'My Generation' has these 70-year-olds styled in the latest street cool fashions.

The photographer, who shot the series for VICE Germany, went to a local retirement home to recruit her models, and she was lucky to find such a fun bunch who were able to strut, flaunt, pose and show off their attitude and swagger. Adorned in some modern hipster bling, the models look adorably funky in their new outfits and their (first time to be held) iPhones.
