Where has the time gone?
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Nirvana's wildly popular album Nevermind, which featured a naked baby boy on its iconic cover, photographer John Chapple tracked down the newborn, who is now a 25-year-old man, and had him recreate the image.
This isn't the first time Elden has attempted to recreate the beloved album cover. At age 17, he participated in a similar shoot at the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center in Pasadena, California, where the first album cover was shot. In an interview with MTV at the time, he admitted that it's an awkward feeling to know that so many people have seen him in the nude.
"It's kind of creepy [to think] that that many people have seen me naked," he explained. "I feel like I'm the world's biggest porn star."
