The Colombian village where Farc rebels will lay down arms

Colombia-based photographer Nicolas Bedoya, a co-founder of photojournalism collective Vela Colectivo, visits an area in Colombia's Antioquia province where rebels will gather to disarm following the peace agreement signed on 26 September between the Farc and the Colombian government.
