Van Woerden: "Before I took the pictures, I considered how the meeting of the two generations could best be portrayed. Finally all couples were photographed in the living room of the elderly.
I asked participants to contact each other by, for instance, holding a hand or sit close to each other; it became intimate photos".

After shooting a short interview took place. Of each pair, a statement was added to the photo. The statements complete the impression of the encounter. Who made the statement was deliberately left blank. was it the younger or older? Thus prejudice was broached, about what would be typically young or old.
