American photojournalist Lynsey Addario’s work regularly appears in The New York Times, National Geographic, and Time magazine. She vividly captures conflicts and humanitarian and human rights issues across the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa. Addario has received numerous awards for her work, including a Pulitzer Prize in international reporting and a MacArthur Genius Grant.
In 2015, American Photo named Addario one of the top five most influential photographers of the last 25 years, citing her ability to “bring back humane tales from some of the most difficult places on earth.” Her memoir, It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War, is being produced as a feature film by Steven Spielberg.
