Matter Stream 24: Leonard Nimoy Was the Guy!
Mar 12 15
Bonnie Moss Talks Fandom, Photography, and Encounters with Leonard.
Leonard Nimoy is, of course, best known for his role as Spock. Not only was he there in the Original Series pilot episode “The Cage,” he was also there in the most recent film, Star Trek Into Darkness. No one epitomizes Star Trek more than Leonard Nimoy. But beyond the screen and stage—and he appeared in many productions beyond Star Trek—Leonard was also know for his photography. And from behind the camera, he moved people just as he did on film.
In this episode of Matter Stream, Christopher Jones and Larry Nemecek bring you an interview with Bonnie Moss, a fan who fell in love with Nimoy as a girl, went on to meet him, and then to work with him on the exhibiting of his photography. Bonnie shares her story and the experience of getting to know the man who was the original Vulcan, her feelings upon learning of his death, and how an upcoming exhibit will honor Leonard by putting his photography in front of new viewers.
