In the preface to his provocative book of nude studies, The Full Body Project, 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 a fantasy ideal...The message is 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 and fine arts.
With a foreword by author Natalie Angier, and an afterword by Anne Wilkes Tucker, Curator of Photography, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
