This blog shows everyday life in Baghdad. The Dutch journalists Paulien Bakker (text) and Marieke van der Velden (photography) travelled to Baghdad in 2011 and 2012 to portray the lives of ordinary people behind the enemy lines. The violence was in decline, people dared to hope again. Paulien will return in July 2014, as Iraq is falling apart, in search of the people we met before.
This project was published on LENS Blog of New York Times, shown on TEDx-Baghdad and won the PANL-Award. We are now looking for new media to publish the stories of 2014.
