Here, we aren't replacing an example of the division between poor and rich with another image, we're using an actual image of a division between poor and rich. Ergo, not a metaphor.
how do you know the image of a division between poor and rich isn't a metaphor for something like the division between the northern and southern states within colonial america? i could easily envision a political cartoon, for example, that uses a similar depiction. this is probably not what the previous posters were talking about, but nonetheless it is possible for that photo to be a metaphor. you are assuming based on preconceived notions that the point of the picture has to be about what the image is immediately representing.

Yes, it could be used as a metaphor but only in a limited amount of situations and it is unlikely because the message it conveys at face value is extraordinarily strong and effective.

Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger. It works the same in any country.- Hermann Goering (1893 - 1946)

it's only strong and effective if what you are talking about is rich and poor. it's not very effective if you are trying to illustrate what winnie the pooh looks like.

I don't know if you're suddenly agreeing with me here but you didn't contradict anything with that

if we're both saying that it would be a stretch but not unimaginable to use it metaphorically then I guess
