Photojournalist Lynsey Addario shares her experiences working around the world
Lynsey Addario became a top photojournalist in the post-9/11 world. Her detention in Libya with 3 other New York Times journalists made international news. Addario’s new book “It’s What I Do” explains how she’s negotiated difficult circumstances in Somalia, Afghanistan, Sudan, Iraq and countless other hot spots. The book offers an inside account of one of the world’s most demanding jobs. Being in a male-dominated business, Addario negotiates the disadvantages of being a woman, while capitalizing on the advantages. She’ll tell us about the professional and personal price of photojournalism today.
