The town of Puerto Berrío sits on a bend in Colombia’s Magdalena River. For over 30 years, local townspeople have fished out the remains of victims of violence drifting downstream. Ordinarily, these unidentified corpses, known as NNs (No Names), would be destined for a mass grave. However, for decades, local townspeople have adopted these bodies and given them names; they decorate their tombs and bring them water, gifts and flowers. In exchange, it is believed that the living are awarded protection and special favors.
