I would like to offer a genuine and sincere apology to anyone who was offended by my Photograph of The Nazi Flag near Whitby Abbey which was displayed on Facebook over the weekend.
A friend pointed out to me today that there may be people and families who continue to be traumatised by what happened to them and family members at the hands of the Nazi’s in the lead up to, and during World War 2.
It was never my intention to upset those people and I offer the sincerest of apologies to that group of individuals.
The removal of my photographs by Facebook and my subsequent 4 day ban has led to a lot of discussions with friends and associates. Many suggestions have been made and thoughts made clear.
For anyone interested in my thinking on the matter, and my answer to the many questions asked, I would like to make the following points.
Q 1. Did you post the photograph on its own.
A 1. No it was presented as a single image amongst a larger body of work taken at The Whitby War Weekend.
Q 2. Do you support The Nazi ideology.
