The photography of Leonard Nimoy

Leonard Nimoy, the actor best known for playing the pointy-eared Spock from « Star Trek »,  had an accomplished career as a fine art photographer from his teens to his death at 83, February 27, 2015.

Nimoy published several books of his photography and had a one-man show of his « Secret Selves » series at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in 2010.
