On the 18th of April, 1996, 6-year-old Luis Corzo was abducted together with his father Juan Corzo, Jr. from their home and held captive for thirty-three days by an organized crime group known as "Los Pasaco". In the early 90s, "Los Pasaco" were the most feared and notorious group of criminals in the country. During this captivity Juan Corzo, Jr was physically tortured to pressure the family into sending money for ransom. Eventually, Juan was released on the 30th day and told to gather more ransom money in order to have Luis released. Three days later, Luis was released in the small town of Chiquimulilla, Santa Rosa. PASACO, 1996 is an investigative photography project that revisits this event. The project contains recuperated documents and media from the time, as well as new documentation of locations, people, and objects, and of a meeting that Luis had with the leader of “Los Pasaco” while still in prison. The book initiates conversations surrounding the story; those of violence, corruption, capital punishment and criminal rehabilitation. Designed Claudia Rubin. Item #26520
