WOMEN BODIES PHOTOGRAPHS THAT INSTAGRAM CENSORED

Women Bodies Photographs That Instagram CensoredIn 2013, artist Petra Collins posted a photograph of her natural bikini line to Instagram—and almost immediately, her account was deleted. In 2015, poet Rupi Kaur’s photograph of a woman sleeping amongst period-stained clothing and bedsheets was taken down, twice, by Instagram moderators. Around this time, Amalia Ulman’s topless portrait in a hotel room window got the axe.
These are just a few of the many photographs that have been banned from Instagram over the years. And last week, a new photo book by artists Molly Soda and Arvida Byström, Pics or It Didn’t Happen: Images Banned From Instagram, brought a selection of them back into the public sphere.
After observing an increasing amount of photographs being taken down from Instagram amongst their peers, Soda and Byström decided to create a book to memorialize those images. They put out a call to friends and the wider Instagram community for submissions of such photographs. From the nearly 1,000 images they received, they chose some 250 to feature.Women Bodies Photographs That Instagram CensoredWomen Bodies Photographs That Instagram CensoredWomen Bodies Photographs That Instagram CensoredWomen Bodies Photographs That Instagram CensoredWomen Bodies Photographs That Instagram CensoredWomen Bodies Photographs That Instagram CensoredWomen Bodies Photographs That Instagram Censored
