Nirvana Baby Recreates Album Cover Photo 25 Years Later
According to the Rolling Stone magazine readers, the third most iconic music album cover of all time is Nirvana’s Nevermind. And to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the album the original money-chasing baby Spencer Elden joined photographer John Chapple in recreating the album-defining moment.
Spencer was more than happy to reprise his iconic role, except he wanted to do it exactly the same – naked. But eventually, the photographer convinced him to put on shorts and make the session widely available to all the audiences. Spencer was paid $200 for the photoshoot, exactly the same amount as his parents received for the original session back in 1991.
The second Nirvana’s album became the grunge genre-defining piece and among music critics, it remains as one of the most influential music records in history.
