The photo series "Danger Ranger" was shot in Conil, Spain. During a study tour I found that highly racist advertising figure by accident in a pack of sweets. Also Conil is referred to as one of the "White Villages"(meaning the color of the houses...) and was thought of having an immigration problem at that time. Danger Ranger was equipped with attributes wich appear African and exotic to western prejudice eyes and painted white to adapt. Then we went on a photo safari to town.
