Nimoy Celebrates Olders Ladies

Published on June 27, 2008 with No Comments

Star Trek star-turned snapper Leonard Nimoy is rallying against the unrealistic portrayal of women in the media – with a new book of photographs of fuller-figured women.

The 77-year-old, who has launched a successful second career as a photographer, hopes The Full Body Project will help larger ladies come to terms with their bodies, and resist the pressure to slim.

He writes in the preface: “The average American woman weighs 25 per cent more than the models wearing the clothes marketed to her. There is a huge industry built up around selling women ways to get their bodies closer to a fantasy ideal. The women in these pages are proudly wearing their own skins. They accept and respect themselves and I hope that my images convey that feeling to others.”
