Description

In the ninth annual Peace Prize exhibition, the audience will for the first time see how the OPCW inspectors monitor, detect and destroy chemical weapons. This year's photographer is the world-renowned Paolo Pellegrin from the photo agency Magnum Photos.

Along with American war correspondent and author Scott Anderson's short texts, Pellegrin's strong black and white images offer a rare glimpse into the work of the weapons inspectors.

The pictures at the exhibition were taken in Libya, the Netherlands, Belgium and in a country in Eastern Europe, and follows OPCW's efforts to eliminate chemical weapons.

Duration: 12 December 2013 - 23 November 2014.
