Art :: Leonard Nimoy and Large Ladies
Actor, director and photographer Leonard Nimoy has a new book of photography due out in December: The Full Body Project, a collection of nude photographs of very full bodied women. “Nimoy captures images of full-bodied women, some of whom are involved in what is known as the ‘fat acceptance’ movement. ‘The average American woman,’ Nimoy writes, ‘weighs 25 percent more than the models selling the clothes. There is a huge industry built up around selling women ways to get their bodies closer to the fantasy ideal. Pills, diets, surgery, workout programs. . . . The message is You don’t look right. If you buy our product, you can get there.'” Published by Five Ties Publishing.
