Aging is a natural process that happens without one even realizing it, which is why Netherlands-based photographer Ruadh DeLone wants to remind viewers, with his series 'Never Grow Old,' that getting old is unchangeable. Using Photoshop, DeLone gave kids between the ages of two and nine a bizarre, more mature look -- he blended their faces with those of 70-year olds.
The result is both creepy and interesting, as one can see how each stage of life is a process that one should accept as is. One of DeLone's reasons for creating this series was to "convey the message that one should always keep their childlike spirit alive even when we become old." If the project is seen with the concept in mind, then one can find it funny and encouraging; however, these photos are also a reality check for those who want remain young forever.
