About the Event

By focusing on humanitarian and human-rights issues, Lynsey has built her career by capturing powerful images in dangerous environments. Since the war began in Ukraine, she has spent more time on the ground there, on assignment for The New York Times, than at home. For this body of work she won the 2023 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting, alongside the elite team of New York Times Journalists; an honor she also won for her New York Times reporting in Afghanistan and Pakistan, in 2009. Despite death threats and multiple kidnappings, she continues walking towards danger and heartache so that we might be able to grasp the true human cost of conflict.

About the Speaker

Lynsey Addario is an American photojournalist, who has been covering conflict, humanitarian crises, climate change, and women’s issues around the Middle East and Africa on assignment for The New York Times and National Geographic for more than two decades. Since September 11, 2001, Addario has covered conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Darfur, South Sudan, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Yemen, Syria, and—most recently—Ukraine. In 2015, American Photo Magazine named Lynsey as one of the five most influential photographers of the past 25 years, saying she changed the way we saw the world’s conflicts. She’s the recipient of numerous awards, including a MacArthur fellowship, two Pulitzer Prizes for international reporting out of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Ukraine, the George Polk award for 2022, the Overseas Press Club’s Olivier Rebbot Award and two Emmy nominations. Her New York Times bestselling memoir, “It’s What I Do,” chronicles her personal and professional life as a photojournalist coming of age in the post-9/11 world. A limited series based on her memoir is currently in production and will stream on Paramount+.
