There is something utterly eerie and haunting about this missing person photo series. Showing us what was left behind by those who have gone missing in El Salvador, 'The Last Outfit of the Missing' is traumatizing and is likely to haunt you for a while.

The harrowing missing person photo series was captured by photographer Fred Ramos who tackles the 'los desaparecidos (the disappeared)' phenomena in El Salvador. With one of the highest murder rates in the world because of the rampant gang violence, many have been captured as victims with no signs of them except what is left behind as this series portrays. What Ramos is trying to do with this project is shine a light on this terrifying issue as it has been ongoing for the past few years with no government policy to deal with it.
