Mark Nixon: Much Loved

"Much Loved" is a series of portraits by Ireland-based portrait photographer Mark Nixon, documenting aging stuffed animals that have been ripped battered and bruised from years of play. "The well-worn toys show battle scars of being the prized possessions of children and cherished companions that have seen many a repair as different parts start wearing down." the artist said, "They may look hideous to our eyes, but each one is beloved by its owner." There are thirty portraits in total and each one has an accompanying story which can be read at Nixon’s site.
