MA – Nimoy: A Retrospective


Leonard Nimoy presents a retrospective of his photographic work at R. Michelson Galleries with an opening reception and book signing on Thursday, July 29 from 6-8 pm.

In November 2008, Leonard Nimoy was at R. Michelson Galleries in Northampton, Massachusetts, to begin his latest photographic journey: Secret Selves. He gathered over one hundred subjects from all walks of life and asked them the question, “Who do you think you are?”

Each subject was recorded as Mr. Nimoy interviewed them and created a photographic portrait of their “alternate identity”. As Mr. Nimoy wrote: “I am hoping to be surprised and delighted by what shows up in front of me. Anything from full costume to nudity–I would encourage all of it.” From the popular rock star and superman to the more unexpected dog lover and Pan, these secret identities offer an intimate, sometimes humorous, and often profound new look at the inner yearnings and fantasies that we all share. 

$39.00 / $75.00 signed
**Only items purchased at the Gallery will be signed by Mr. Nimoy**
An 80 page catalog has been published in conjunction with the exhibition “Secret Selves” and includes a foreword by Joseph Thompson, Director of MASS MoCA; an introduction by Leonard Nimoy; a behind-the-scenes description of the project by Richard Michelson, and an essay by John Stomberg, Deputy Director and Chief Curator of the Williams College Museum of Art.  The publication will be fully illustrated with full page plates of the twenty five photographs featured in the exhibition as well as over sixty additional images from the series.
