Eugenie Dolberg is the creator of the Open Shutters project and a British based photo journalist whose work has appeared widely in international publications.

The Open Shutters Iraq project brought five Iraqi women with no photography experience together with a photo journalist to document their lives through their own work in a visually affecting exhibition. The Iraqi women, of diverse ages and backgrounds were trained to trace the trajectory of their own lives, and then used this process, as well as their training in photography, to create the story they wanted to tell through photographs taken themselves, resulting in an exhibition that reflects some of the realities for civilian women living in Iraq today.
