This photo was posted to Facebook recently by Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol. It's a birthday photo (He was born 9/28/76). Unfortunately this crossed some unstated censorship barrier at Facebook. A few hours ago he was banned from posting future photos there. So I'm reposting here in the hope that this photo will recirculate, but mostly to say Fuck You to Facebook censors. I would like Facebook or anyone reading this to explain to me why this photo is obscene. You can find a million photos of guns, blood, and carnage on Facebook. But post a photo of the most natural process in the world and it's censored??? I can't explain it. I just know someone at Facebook has their head up their ass.
Update 10/8: Sobol reports on his Facebook page this morning that his ability to post has been reinstated. No word of explanation yet. Curious to see how this story develops.
