Leonard Nimoy's "The Fully Body Project" (11 Photos)

We all remembered him as “Spock” in Star Trek but probably few knew him as a photographer. Leonard Nimoy’s passing recently on Friday was another sad loss for the world but he not only left behind memorable moments on film but also photos of his passion – photography, such as this project featuring full-bodied women entitled The Fully Body Project.

The The Fully Body Project was inspired by a full-figured woman who approached Nimoy and asked if he might photograph her and her friends.

Natalie Angier, an author who wrote the introduction to The Full Body Project, told Mashable that Nimoy was deeply troubled upon hearing that most women felt some degree of body shame.

“It really disturbed him that women who considered themselves overweight had this terrible feeling about themselves,” Angier said. “He wanted to show the world that there’s beauty to be found in different body types.”
