SICARIO, a job like any other
Photographer: Michele Crameri
Exhibit Title: SICARIO, a job like any other
Taxi driver, barber, or funeral director by day. Sicario (hitman) by night. In Honduras, life’s easier with a second job, above all when a single payment can be up to 10,000 dollars.
About fifty kilometres south of the Caribbean Sea shores, among the alluvial forests of the Sula Valley, “the murder capital of the world” is located. San Pedro Sula is Honduras’ second largest city, a place tormented by the endemic violence of gang affiliates. Hit men represent a wide spread phenomenon in the country’s underbelly. Among judges, journalists, lawyers, activists, and other gang members, victims of the sicarios are countless. This profession draws the boundaries of the cruellest frontier of human rights neglect in the country: money is, indeed, the only reason to kill. Sicarios are feared and revered, and represent a high social status in Latin-American criminal geographies.
