Leonard Nimoy & the Fat Chicks

Look at the beautiful photography of Leonard Nimoy!

The Full Body Project: Photographs by Leonard Nimoy came out in December 2007 and takes gorgeous fat women and exposes them in all their beauty. Some of the poses come directly from fine art paintings, such as Matisse's "Dance" seen below.

A wonderful article about the making of the book can be read in this New York Times article.

Simply amazing!


(Thanks to my BarbFriend in New Orleans for sending the links to me!)

Thanks so much for posting this blog about The Full Body Project.
I am a model in the book.
With Leonard's permission I created a MySpace page: myspace.com/fullbodyproject
I would love to add you as a Friend.
And, I love the picture of the pregnant woman in the pool. Just beautiful!

OK. *sigh* I'm a Trekkie so i have no idea what to think. I kinda feel like Nimoy stole my idea though. LOL! Hey check out my blog because i need some feedback on my own photography.

Thank you for posting these great pics. I love them and hope they can add a ray of reality to the world's oversaturated-with-skinny -chicks-daily-media-imagery. Hooray!

I just wrote a post about this exact same thing, and then went looking to see what the rest of the blogren had to say about it. The general consensus is that Nimoy has totally got it together on this one.

I found that, as I was looking at the pictures, I kept trying to find the woman who looked most like me naked. I'm thinking I'm not the only one.
