Default Leonard Nimoy's passion for photography that championed women with fuller figures celebrated after his death

Quote:
Nimoy's collection The Full Body Project from 2007 featured obese women photographed in the nude
His subjects are the plus-size burlesque group The Fat-Bottom Revue from San Francisco
Pictures feature the women dancing, laughing and proudly staring straight into the camera
Nimoy said the book was a 'direct response to the pressure women face to conform to a size two'

For The Full Body Project, Nimoy found new subjects in the plus-size
burlesque group The Fat-Bottom Revue


It was a logical progression...

I am all for Rubenesque but taken in moderation.
