Pablo Escobar, for his part, ordered the construction of hotels in Isla Palma and Bahía Solano to stay during his visits, as a summer resort. 2021. El pez muere por la boca reflects on the resilience of peoples in contexts of drug trafficking and fishing. It's a participatory and intervention project in which the community is an active part in the creation of the images.
