Over the last 20 years, pre-eminent American photojournalist Lynsey Addario has documented a rapidly-changing world. Her photographs focus on humanitarian and human rights issues across the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa for The New York Times, National Geographic, and Time Magazine, and is represented exclusively by Getty Images Reportage. Her work is featured in the National Geographic exhibition Women of Vision, on view September 26 – January 3, 2016 at Fernbank Museum.
In 2015, American Photo Magazine named Lynsey as one of five most influential photographers of the past 25 years, saying she changed the way we saw the world’s conflicts.
Lynsey has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’ and the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting, both in 2009. In 2010 she was named one of 20 women on Oprah Winfrey’s Power List and one of Glamour Magazine’s 20 women of the year in 2011.
She recently released her first book, the New York Times Bestselling memoir, It’s What I Do, a chronicle of her personal and professional life as a photojournalist coming of age in the post-9/11 world.
