Recreates Iconic Photograph 25 Years Later

The baby from Nirvana's Nevermind cover is now 25 years old, and in homage to the album's quarter century anniversary, he recently decided to recreate the pose that made him famous.


Whether you’re a fan of Nirvana or not, chances are that you’re familiar with the cover of their Nevermind album. It’s the one with a naked baby chasing a dollar in a swimming pool, and a reader’s poll for Rolling Stone magazine rated it as the third most iconic cover of all time.
Well believe it or not, that little baby – named Spencer Elden – is now 25 years old, and in homage to the album’s quarter century anniversary, he recently decided to recreate the pose that made him famous. He wanted to do it “au naturel” in order to stay true to the original, but the photographer John Chapple fortunately talked him out of it and convinced him to wear shorts for the shoot. Chapple paid him $200, which is exactly what Elden’s parents were paid for Spencer’s involvement in the Nevermind cover, but it’s not so much about the money as it is about honoring what is arguably the defining album of the grunge movement.
