RECEIVE EMAIL FOR NEW EPISODES

He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, he played one of the most iconic roles on TV and directed movies. And he died this morning. I’m of course talking about Leonard Nimoy. And I’m sure as many of you did, I grew up with him on TV, obviously in Star Trek as Mr. Spock.. and I was actually planning to skip this week’s episode because of just so many things going on here right now, but when I heard the sad news, I thought I had to bring up another side of this man, that’s very relevant to this little show.. and that’s the fact that in addition to being an actor, Leonard Nimoy was also a photographer.

The full video

There’s his The Full Body project, the Shekhina series, he released some poetry and photography and he even exhibited in the Emerson Gallery in Berlin.

So when I started thinking about what I could say here.. I actually remembered a video that I saw a year ago, where Leonard Nimoy gets interviewed by Pharell Williams on the Reserve Channel… and in addition to talking about Star Trek and other things, Williams asks him about his photography, so let’s hear it from Leonard Nimoy himself
