Open Shutters Iraq

Shot with Olympus E510
In the spring of 2007 a group of 8 Iraqi women and a six year old child participated in a unique creative event. Using digital photography, the women set out at considerable risk to make deeply personal and emotional photo stories of their lives in Iraq, now.

You can see these photographs outside the Mayor's offices by Tower Bridge up until the 2nd November. Their website is here.

I am away on holiday so will be unable to respond until the 27th October. Usual magic keeps things appearing each day.

I'll get back to their website in a bit, but had to find out if you are STILL on vacation or is this a new one? One might think you are actually French with all of this vacation you're taking! ;-)

Great photo, good idea. Where ARE you. I'd better not find out you'd been near me and hadn't met for a coffee... lol
