As I Was Dying


Winner European Publishers Award For Photography


As I was Dying brings together Paolo Pellegrin’s remarkable and moving images of human suffering within areas of conflict and war. Pellegrin captures both the horror and despair of war, and his photographs convey the powerlessness of those who are victim to it, as they witness the destruction of their homes and the death of their loved ones. These are forceful and unforgetable images that resonate in the memory and give voice to the unbearable suffering of so many people.

He has won numerous awards including the Eugene Smith Award, the Vis D'Or, World Press awards, the Hasselblad Grant, the Robert Capa Gold Medal and the Olivier Rebot Award.
