A PHOTOGRAPHER’S LIFE OF LOVE AND WAR
Lynsey Addario has captured audiences with her disarming and compelling photographs and her uncanny ability to personalize even the most remote corners of our world. Vanity Fair praised her: "she is more than a war photographer" with her look at "subjects' impossible circumstances to show beauty and their humanity." Why would anyone willingly plunge headfirst into the war-torn areas of Afghanistan, Darfur, or Libya? For photojournalist and MacArthur Fellow Lynsey Addario, the short, simple answer is also the title of her memoir: It’s What I Do. Despite death threats and kidnappings, she continues photographing pivotal subjects for National Geographic, The New York Times, and TIME. Join us to honor this local legend, raised in Westport and a graduate of Staples High School’s Class of 1991. Addario has won countless awards and distinctions including the MacArthur Fellowship, the Pulitzer Prize for Journalism, and an Emmy.
