Leonard Nimoy photography
If you’ve read my ‘about’ section or at least one or two other blogs dear reader, then you know I’m a lesbian.
And damned proud of it.
Though it’s hardly the most interesting thing about me or the only thing I care about or that interests me.
However, it contributes to my admiration of the nude female form and it’s exquisite beauty. Women’s bodies in all their power and magic have inspired sonnets, plays, statues, photography, paintings and an endless list of other media in art.
I am no scholar on the subject by any means but I know what I like and I know what experience has taught me.
Also, it has inspired me to invite you to check out Leonard Nimoy’s, The Full Body Project, a beautiful collection of photographs I stumbled upon while watching television. I don’t recall the program that featured him.
His images are respectful, joyful, real and non-exploitive which, when I look at an image of a nude woman, I appreciate.
Viewers aren’t stupid, which is what I would like to tell the producers of porn, magazines like GQ and Maxim and even the producers of porn videos.
Smart people like to look at nude bodies and can observe images and videos critically and spot objectification, exploitation or the feeling that the producers are catering to the basest of humanity.
I like to know that when art is produced that artists are mindful of their subjects and the amount of garbage out there already filling young minds with the notion of what bodies look like and should do in private spaces.
Some people I’m sure would kill me for mentioning GQ and art in the same sentence. No disrespect to the mainstream magazine industry or that publication in particular.
In conclusion, if you’re a discerning person who likes Mr Nimoy, photography or just naked pictures (hey, no judgment here, this is the interwebs after all!) then I am sure you will like his work as much as I do!
