These amazing photos were all taken by Leonard Nimoy

Last week the world mourned the death of actor Leonard Nimoy.

While instantly recognisably as Star Trek's Spock, Nimoy was also a respected and prolific photographer.

In the 1940s he turned the bathroom at his family home in Boston into a darkroom, before studying at UCLA and later getting an artist in residence status.

Nimoy's work has been exhibited in the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and the Jewish Museum of New York; you can see a selection below, courtesy of R Michelson Galleries.
