Kent Rogowski's Bears

These inside out teddy bears are cute, and slightly scary. The teddy bears come from a book from Kent Rogowski simply entitled "Bears".

The book features photographs of stuffed bears that have been turned inside out. For such a simple concept the results are brilliant. It really makes me want to try it but I fear my attempts would look rubbish and I don't want to kill a teddy bear.

Here are two of the best comments from his website:
"If I were a stuffed bear that got turned inside out, I would want my ears too. What are we to make of this pack (?) of bears living in a seamless silence? Each member of this strange mute toyscape is odd and mysterious and seems terribly vulnerable."

"You're a monster. Maybe you should be turned out..."
