Magnum photographer Paolo Pellegrin has photographed the chemical weapons inspectors of The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons who have been awarded the Nobel Peace prize this year. He was given unique access and his images provide a rarely seen insight into the daily lives of the inspectors and their hazardous work. The images, taken in Libya, the Netherlands and Belgium document OPCW’s work abolishing chemical weapons of today and from WWI.
