Much Loved


Much Loved by Irish photographer Mark Nixon is a visual essay of stuffed animals- stuffed with love I think. While these stuffies, bears, dogs and giraffes among them, were no doubt adorable once upon a time, now they could put fear into the heart of a young child.  What makes one stuffie so loved while another finds itself under shoes in the closet?

“These "much-loved" objects are world travelers, defenders against unruly terriers, pirate adventurers, and comforters of the ailing. The youngest is 5 years old, the oldest is 102. Some are tattered and dread-locked, missing ears, limbs, eyes, and stuffing.” Publishers Weekly

Prepare for a giggle and maybe a little heart ache.
