Baby/Parent Photo Swaps

paulripke_2.png

We've all been there. A colleague shoves a selection of dull, unrequested baby photos your way and you grin and bear your way through them, struggling to mask your apathy.

Chances are if photographer Paul Ripke was your colleague, you'd have an extremely different reaction. In his collection of pictures, the faces of parents and children are swapped, scaring us more than we'd like to fully admit.

The playful pics imagine a world straight out of an Adam Sandler comedy and one that may crop up in one of our nightmares quite soonish.
