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 GeographicThe 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.
