NORTHAMPTON, MA – Artist/actor Leonard Nimoy has
been a photographer most of his life He first experienced the
magic of
making photographic images as a teenager in the early 1940’s. “I was
thirteen,” he says, when he discusses his attraction to the family
camera, a
bellows Kodak Autographic, which is a cherished part of his collection
to this
day.   His darkroom was the family
bathroom in their small Boston apartment.   His subjects
were family and friends.
Nimoy’s first enlarger was a do-it-yourself number built around the same
time as
the family Kodak. On exhibition from July 29th to October
31st with an artists reception and book signing on July
29th from 6 to 8 pm.
