It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War

One of the few photojournalists with experience in Afghanistan, when Lynsey Addario was asked to return and cover the American invasion, she made a decision – not to stay home, not to lead a quiet or predictable life, but to set out across the world, face the chaos of crisis, and make a name for herself.

Addario photographed the Afghan people before and after the Taliban reign, the civilian casualties and misunderstood insurgents of the Iraq War, as well as the burned villages and countless dead in Darfur. She exposed a culture of violence against women in the Congo, and was kidnapped by pro-Qaddafi forces in the Libyan civil war.

Watching uprisings unfold and people fight to the death for their freedom, Addario documents not only news but also the fate of society. She talks about her work in this fully illustrated presentation.
