“Tourists”

This picture was taken in 2018 on the west coast of Portugal, near Lisbon. Since it was published on Unsplash, it has had almost a 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 my most shared picture. Look at this incredible list – 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?
