Mr. Quacker goes wherever you go. Yes, Junior’s prized plushie has been to the grocery store, the doc’s office, and even the Four Seasons in Maui (lucky goose). But he’s starting to look a bit ragged.
No time like the present for a photo shoot. Still Treasures, the brainchild of NYC kiddies Sami and Charlotte Cohen and local photographer Brian Marcus, produces still life photos of beloved objects before they’ve been worn to threads.
Marcus has focused his lens on blankies, baseball gloves, favorite toys, and beloved books, turning them into wall art that deserves a prominent spot in your home. No need to be concerned about sneaking said treasure out of the house for more than a day or two, he promises a quick turnaround.
So Mr. Quacker won’t miss a beat. Or a playdate.
Available online at stilltreasures.com, $350-$895 for a matted, framed print.
