Cristina de Middel Project for Nobel Peace Center campaign on sexual violence as a weapon of war :"THE BODY AS A BATTLEFIELD". © Cristina de Middel/Magnum Photos for the Nobel Peace Center. Lagos, Nigeria. 2018. © Cristina de Middel

This year’s Nobel Peace Prize Exhibition focuses on Dr Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad, exploring how sexual violence has been, and still is, used as a weapon of war worldwide.

“The violence itself is in many cases so overwhelming that it’s hard to convey sufficiently through the documentary genre,” explains Cristina de Middel, who is this year’s official photographer for the Nobel Peace Prize. Instead, she portrays the topic of sexual violence in conflict and war in a series of staged photographs taken in Nigeria in 2018 using local volunteers.
