LYNSEY ADDARIO has spent two decades photographing some of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. She’s documented the genocide in Darfur, life in Afghanistan under the Taliban, the US-led invasion in Iraq, and the plight of Syrian refugees. She’s worked in some of the most dangerous places in the world and has been kidnapped twice. Throughout her career, she’s also focused her lens on women living through conflicts. Addario’s photojournalism has been awarded a MacArthur and a Pulitzer Prize and she’s the author of the memoir, It’s What I Do. This hour, we’ll talk with Addario about the wars, atrocities, humanity and resilience that she’s witnessed and her new book of photography, Of Love & War.
