“Tourists”

This picture was taken in 2018 on the west coast of Portugal, near Lisbon. Since it was published on Unsplash, it has had 1.3 million clicks. Most blogs and newspapers that downloaded this photo used it for articles about refugees – but these guys are tourists –¬† only watching the Portuguese fishermen on a spring day. I had absoloutly no political intentions with this picture – nevertheless it is one of my most shared pictures. Look at this incredible list – almost each of these websites around the world uses this image for immigration policy. Is it enough if a person has a black skin colour to brand him as a refugee?
