|I’m putting together a photo exhibition for a UN small arms conference in July of this year and I’m looking for photos to include.
The purpose of the exhibition – which will be accompanied by a talk and a debate – will be to highlight the need for an internationally agreed standard for the marking of small arms so that they can be traced back to source.
I’m looking for any images that could contribute to this story – ranging from production of small arms (showing the marking process) through to end use in conflict situations. I’m also looking for images of guns being identified in weapons collection programmes etc. Basically any photos that relate to the identification of small arms. I also need a few more generalised photos of the destructive impact of small arms.
All photos used in the exhibition will of course be paid for.
Cheers, Lydia //www.bicc.de
