47 year old Jose Parra Zape exposes his shocking scar which he got when hit by eight bullets during a paramilitary swarm of his property while they were in the process of stealing his family's land. Jose's mid-section bulges forward, keeping in the plethora of artificial organs that have replaced about 60 percent of his natural organs. No one has been or is likely to be arrested for this brutal attack. Jose now lives in constant fear for his life.This story by Mads Nissen was partly funded by a grant and when published it should be credited: Funding for this project was provided by the Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation for International Photography.
