Leonard Nimoy | Photography World News

Leonard Nimoy – best known as the pop culture icon ‘Spock’ from the TV series and movie Star Trek – passed away on 27th February 2015 aged 83

Nimoy also had a hidden talent: photography. In 2010, he unveiled an exhibition of photo portraits called Secret Selves at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Massachusetts.

It is a preview from the DVD included in one of Leonard Nimoy’s photography books.
