A former Vogue photographer and artist has caused a stir in Hackney with plans to display his latest work - swastikas made out of Catholic communion wafers.

The artwork, by photographer Colin Hampden-White, is intended as an attack on Pope Pius XII, who did not speak out against the Holocaust.

The swastikas occupy two squares of the annual 100sqft art exhibition. The idea is that any artist can buy space on a grid of 30cm squares, to show his or her work.
