The project is the creation of Netherlands-based designer Yoni Lefévre, who first asked a group of children to sketch their grandparents and then brought those drawings to life with the help of photographer Nick Bookelaar and costume designers Truce Gelissen & Juno Lefévre.

Lefévre subtitled the series "Active human beings who add color to their life," as depicted here in young Roel's drawing of his grandpa on the courts.

Lefévre says, "We are living in a rapidly aging society. A majority regards this as a negative development."

"Older people are perceived as standing on the sidelines, having lost their independence," Lefévre writes. "But I see the great value this generation can offer."

For this series, Lefévre used drawings made by children of their grandparents, to "create an image boost for this generation."
Anne, 11, Draws Her Grandfather
As this drawing of a multi-armed grandfather shows, Lefévre enjoys proving his theory that "children do not regard their grandparents as gray and withered, but as active human beings who add color to their lives."

"[Children's] fresh perspective can contribute towards a more nuanced and positive view on the composition of our society," Lefévre says.
Raf, 11, Draws Grandmother
Lefévre eloquently explains why he does what he does: "I have a general interest in the world around me, and I think good design begins with empathy and communicating emotions. By creating conceptual solutions for cultural and social issues, I’m hoping to contribute to a better world."

Some of Yoni Lefévre's other interesting works include an awareness campaign about wasteful food behaviors in the Netherlands (The Leftovers), a poignant look at a nursery home (The Most Valuable Remains) and an amusing reinterpretation of various news broadcasts (When Pigs Fly).
