MASS GRAVE AESTHETICS

El Playon
, Sonsonate Department, El Salvador

Despite it’s proximity to the nations capital San Salvador, El Playon was the dumping site of choice for right-wing militias and death squads during the bloody civil war of the 70’s and 80’s.

The stench of death and decay would attract thousands of vultures who would pick the carcasses clean within hours, making it impossible to trace the killers through forensic examination or to quickly identify the bodies of the victims.
