"Death at the door of paradise" (Javier Bauluz, 2000)

Photography by Pulitzer Prize Javier Bauluz.

A couple of visitors sat under an umbrella near the corpse of a sub-Saharan immigrant who drowned after his raft sank before the beach of Zahara. The corpse was not removed for several hours, but the seasonal activity of a beach crowded with visitors continued unhindered.
