Samuel Aranda/Panos Pictures

Algeciras, Cadiz, Spain

The body of a drowned migrant Martin Zamora's funeral home where he will carry out the embalming process. Martin Zamora has become known, in his corner of southern Spain, as 'the gravedigger of migrants'. When a body washes up in Algeciras, a port across a bay from Gibraltar, it's often Zamora who drives out to collect the remains. He takes them to his mortuary, embalms them and then starts the long process of learning the identities of the dead and who might claim them. This can involve sending photos to fishermen and smugglers in Morocco who might be able to help in the search.
