"Leonard Nimoy writes “The average American woman weighs twenty-five percent more than the models wearing the clothes marketed to her. There is a huge industry built up around selling women ways to get their bodies closer to the fantasy ideal. The message is ‘You don't look right. But if you buy our product, you can get there.’” In The Full Body Project, Nimoy presents images of full-bodied women--many of whom are engaged in "fat liberation" and the "size acceptance" movement -- and challenges dominant notions of the ideal female figure as represented in the media ad fine arts." - from the blurb in the back if the book.

"Nimoy's interest in photography began in childhood; for the rest of his life, he owned a camera he had rebuilt at the age of 13. In the 1970s, he studied photography at the University of California, Los Angeles.[28][89] His photography studies at UCLA occurred after Star Trek and Mission: Impossible, when Nimoy seriously considered changing careers. His work has been exhibited at the R. Michelson Galleries in Northampton, Massachusetts[28] and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art."- from wikipedia.
