Starting today, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art is presenting an exhibition of Leonard Nimoy’s latest photographs in conjunction with R. Michelson Galleries.
Leonard Nimoy is probably most famous for playing the role of Mr. Spock in the Star Trek TV Series and movies. He is also an avid photographer, starting as a teenager developing films in the family bathroom / darkroom. He studied at UCLA under Robert Heineken in the early 1970’s and later received an “artist in residence” appointment at the American Academy in Rome.
Leonard Nimoy’s photography is included in many museum collections, including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Judah L. Magnes Museum, The LA County Museum of Art, the Jewish Museum of NY, The New Orleans Museum of Fine Art and The Hammer Museum.
You can meet Leonard Nimoy in person at the opening reception of Leonard Nimoy: A Retrospective on July 29th from 6 to 8pm at the R.Michelson Galleries, Northampton MA. He will also be signing books purchased at the opening reception [only].
