Made of stuffed socks and everyday materials—often the cast off threads, buttons and bows from a sewing project—each sock monkey springs from its maker's imagination. From Ron Warren's massive collection of over 2,000 of these playful creatures, Arne Svenson's photographs have captured the distinct personalities in each of these colorful, lovable, button-eyed, grinning faces. Whether wistful or cheeky, we find ourselves inventing stories to suit each character. Some are dressed for a night on the town, others for a day on the farm! These charming creations bring out the child in all of us.
