Photographer Mark Nixon’s new photo book, “Much Loved,” published by Abrams Image, is a nostalgic look at stuffed animals who have been lovingly abused throughout the years. Influenced after seeing how infatuated his son was with his Peter Rabbit, Nixon created the series as a testament to childhood and the things we hold near.
Pink Teddy: Belongs to Aisling Hurley Pink Teddy, age 24, was given to then-6-month-old Hurley on Christmas Day 1988. Except for a few small trips, the two were inseparable, even when Hurley moved to college. Unfortunately, Pink Teddy was the victim of a deranged fellow student, who tore the bear to pieces after a house party. Hurley’s great aunt restored Teddy to his almost former glory with some tender love and care. Mark Nixon/Abrams Image Buy Photo
