Spring-Autumn is a series of photos where adult grandchildren exchange clothes with their grandparents.  Qozop, the photographer, was interested in how fashion choices correlated with age. 

Having worked with many seniors who had a love of brightly-colored, polyester leisure suits, it does appear interest in popular trends declines around fifty. 

The fashion exchange created a charming look at the generations.
