It’s a universal truth that kids are adorable doing just about anything—and that includes taking on the appearances of senior citizens. California-based photographer Zachary Scott proved this by transforming six toddlers into elderly versions of themselves for a series of photo illustrations for the recent New York Times article “What if Age Is Nothing but a Mind-set?”.

With the help of hair, makeup, props, and subtle photo retouching, the six young models completely embody old souls, even mimicking the body language and facial expressions of old-timers. Scott’s creations act as perfect companions for the article text, illustrating the concept of “reverse aging” in a brilliant way.
