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.
