Leonard Nimoy, the actor best known for playing the pointy-eared Spock from "Star Trek", had an accomplished career as a fine art photographer from his teens to his death at 83, February 27, 2015.
He fell in love with the magic of photography through his family's camera, a bellows Kodak Autographic, at the age of 13. His darkroom was the family bathroom in their small Boston apartment.
Nimoy published several books of his photography and had a one-man show of his "Secret Selves" series at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in 2010.
The "Shekhina" series: Nimoy was "intrigued with scriptural mythology that tells us that God created a divine feminine presence to dwell amongst humanity..."
