Seattle Police said Monday that they are investigating a series of photos taken at the Evergreen Washelli Cemetery that depict nude women hanging from a war memorial and a cannon located among the graves of thousands of veterans.

The images were posted on a bondage fetish website and on the photographer’s own website.

“They would find them abhorrent,” Brigadier General Marcia Clark (Ret.) said of the images. “They would find them most of all, disrespectful.”

Clark, who volunteers at the veterans cemetery, said she was stunned to see the photos.

“There are people who are buried here,” Clark said, “but this cemetery is very much alive.”

The photos were taken by photographer Patrick Andraste.  Andraste declined requests for an interview.  In an email to KING 5, he said he took the photos on September 4 and 6.

Seattle Police were notified by cemetery management, who had been tipped off to the photos by veterans and users of the sites where the photo swere posted. Police said they are looking into possible trespassing violations.

“All we’re asking is show some respect,” an anonymous user of the fetish website told KING 5, “No respect was done.”

Andraste told KING 5 he is getting legal representation.
