Nirvana Album Cover Baby Recreates Iconic Photograph 25 Years Later

Spencer Elden was the baby on the front of the 1991 Nirvana album Nevermind and to mark the anniversary he’s made the iconic picture again.

But this time clothes were involved.

“I said to the photographer, ‘Let’s do it naked.’ But he thought that would be weird, so I wore my swim shorts,” Spencer told the New York Post.

“It’s cool but weird to be part of something so important that I don’t even remember.

“It’s strange that I did this for five minutes when I was four months old and it became this really iconic image.”
Spencer is now an artist living in LA.

His parents were paid £154 for the original shoot and he was paid the same amount earlier this month for the recreation.

The original photo was taken by Kirk Weddle, a friend of Spencer’s dad. The new picture is taken by British photographer John Chapple in the same California pool as the original.
