Of Bodies, Beauty, and Deviance

As we remember Leonard Nimoy for creating the joy forever that is Mr. Spock, I also want to honor his other artistic work. His photography, for instance, and his exploration of what “beauty” truly means.

Thank you, Leonard. LLAP.

Let me back up. Way up, because while it’s new to me, Leonard Nimoy actually completedthis set of photographs (published as The Full Body Project) in 2007. I came across his work in the context of Melissa McEwan’s recent post about speaking to a photography class about the Beauty Standard. (She was second in the series following Nimoy.)

(To back even further up: did other folks already know that Nimoy is an accomplished photographer, who started his work in the early ’70s?? News to me!)
