#Repost @adey__adey PLEASE SHARE Dear @instagram, I write to you as a photographer who has been silenced, and on behalf of all fellow artists who have been harassed, censored and removed by Instagram for sharing artwork that aim to provoke and challenge the viewer. In the early hours of Friday 18th August you, Instagram, removed my account without warning. For two and half years I have organically built up my network, investing hundreds of hours reaching out to find a community of people that would support and respond to my work. I gained a following of more than 68k people and through that self-published my first photobook, got featured in many online and print magazines, had exhibitions around the world, sold my images in print and, most recently, donated a work to Cosenza Pride with its proceeds going toward supporting abused LGBTQ victims. 
I’m a British photographer whose work features nude models creating images that challenge gender roles and normative behaviour within society. The images I create are never sexually driven, never about sex and not sexually suggestive. They are about equality, love, connection, acceptance, and breaking down stigmas associated with same sex relationships. 
It is clear for many people the double standards that exist and are promoted on social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook. You do not have to look far to find accounts with hundreds of thousands or even millions of followers who regularly post images that sexualise, objectify and degrade, in the majority of cases, women. How can a picture of a naked woman with her legs spread and child’s teddy bear covering her genitals be acceptable whilst my image of 2 men embracing in a hug cannot? Could sexism, sponsorship, marketing and homophobia have anything to do with it? When you, Instagram, remove an image or account, you talk about keeping the platform safe. The problem with removing all artistic forms of nudity are that Instagram/Facebook supports the automatic association that nudity equals sex. It does not! And by keeping sexualised images of mostly women will continue to play into the narrative that women are objects for men to look at and potentially abuse.
