Open Shutters examines the human reality of war through the eyes of nine Iraqi women. The exhibition consists of photographic and written essays created in 2007 by these women who came from all over the country and from widely differing social and political backgrounds. Their photos and words express, in an evocative and deeply personal way, how they felt about what was happening around them. The images have been referred to as extraordinary photos taken by ordinary women.
