Lynsey Addario

Lynsey Addario is a name synonymous with photojournalism, conflict reporting and the empowerment of women in male-dominated industries. As one of the most courageous and dedicated photojournalists of our time, she has spent the past two decades covering conflicts and humanitarian crises across the globe.

Her work has taken her to the frontlines of conflict zones in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, South Sudan, and Libya. She has risked her life to document the stories of people affected by war, poverty, and social injustice, often putting herself in harm’s way to bring their stories to the world.

Addario’s talent and commitment have earned her numerous awards, including a MacArthur Fellowship, four Pulitzer Prizes, and induction into the National Geographic Society as an Explorer. She is also a recipient of the International Center of Photography’s Infinity Award for Photojournalism and the Royal Photographic Society’s Centenary Medal.

But Addario’s impact goes beyond her iconic photographs. She is a passionate advocate for women in journalism and has worked to mentor and promote the careers of female photojournalists around the world. Her best-selling memoir, It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War, has inspired a new generation of young photographers to pursue their dreams fearlessly.

In recognition of her extraordinary achievements, Addario was named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2015. She continues to push boundaries and inspire others with her work, reminding us of the power of storytelling to effect change and create connections across cultures and borders.

In her personal life, Lynsey is a mother, a wife, and a mentor to many. She believes deeply in the power of empathy and compassion to heal the world, and her work reflects this philosophy in every way.
