Witold Pilecki. A Polish soldier, the man who told the world about Auschwitz and the Holocaust. He got himself a Jewish ID, got arrested and sent to Auschwitz (yes that Auschwitz), After reporting on the atrocities witnessed. He escaped in 1941. A British historian wrote, "If there was an Allied hero who deserved to be remembered and celebrated, this was a person with few peers." Before his act of bravery Auschwitz was just considered to be another large prison camp.

From the Full Body Project, by Leonard Nimoy.

This picture is a version of the three graces

It’s a classic pose

Both versions are beautiful,  but I much prefer the Full Body Project version because these women are so beautiful and lovely and make me happy. Happy to be queer, happy to be a woman, happy to be fat and to love other fat people.

Every single hater is invited to acquaint themselves with my fists.

leonard nimoy was important to so many people for a lot of reasons, but for me, The Full Body Project will always be top of the list

just one of the most beautiful, tender, respectful portrayals of fat bodies

it helped me move from indifference about my own body to begin to love it

I’m so glad I own a copy of the book, and I feel so lucky that Leonard Nimoy signed it

The most important thing to me about the Full Body Project is that it came about because someone asked him “why are all your models thin?” and instead of getting defensive or making up some answer about aesthetics, Leonard Nimoy stopped and went “wait, why are all my models thin?” and set about exploring that automatic choice within himself through what became the Full Body Project — it wasn’t just about portraying fat bodies beautifully and classically (the images echo famous statues, supermodel photographs, friezes, etc) but also about sharply interrogating himself as an artist as to why he’d had to go out and deliberately learn how to see fat bodies as beautiful, rather than being able to do so automatically as he had with thin bodies. 

He was just an astonishingly cool man in so many ways.
