Kent Rogowski’s Inside-Out Teddy Bear Portraits

Artist Kent Rogowski takes teddy bears, turns them inside out, re-stuffs them, and then photographs the results

His artist statement is a bit much: “They are at once hideous yet cuddly, disturbing yet endearing, absurd yet adorable, while offering a metaphor for us all to consider. These bears, which have lived and loved and lost as much as their owners, have suffered and endured through it all. It is by virtue of revealing their inner core might we better understand our own.” But the portraits themselves are worth a look.
