    Leonard Nimoy: Secret Selves

    Leonard Nimoy's photographic series Secret Selves explores the inner yearnings and fantasies that we all share. Inspired by Aristophanes' theory that humans were once double-sided creatures with two heads and multiple limbs before Zeus divided humans in two, Nimoy's project reveals his subjects' other, or second self. Nimoy recruited portrait models in Northampton, MA, with an open call to be photographed posed and dressed as their true or imagined "secret selves." The resulting large-scale portraits offer an intimate, sometimes humorous, and profound new look at the residents of Northampton.
