An interesting take on baby photography: Cute portraits of toddlers dressed to look like the elderly created by Zachary Scott.

These adorable portraits of toddlers-turned-elderly were created by Californian photographer Zachary Scott for the New York Times magazine.

The portraits were commissioned to illustrate an article on reverse ageing, with the elderly effect created through prosthetic make-up as well as digital retouching. The results are a little uncanny, but very cute nonetheless.
