Meet the Photographer Who Found How to Balance a Life of Love and War

"I can’t imagine not dedicating my life to trying to stop those things from happening," says photojournalist Lynsey Addario

“I would never think of myself as a role model,” says Lynsey Addario. The 41-year-old, twice-kidnapped, mother-of-one, award-winning photojournalist has released, this month, her first book: an autobiography of her life as a Connecticut-born photographer who has spent the last 15 years witnessing the true human cost of war, particularly for women across the world.

Why it pays to work the fringes

Photojournalist Lynsey Addario's intimate account of

t’s What I Do is a story of guts, professional ambition, and personal growth that will be familiar to a generation of journalists who came of age on the battlefields of America’s war on terror after the attacks of September 11, 2001. It is also the story of a woman making her way in a man’s world, whether she’s fending off men grabbing her ass while shooting on the streets of Pakistan, or being told by a male correspondent that her being a woman will interfere with their access to a prominent Afghan leader they’ve been assigned to profile. (Addario quickly finds her way to the warlord’s mansion, and is busy shooting when her colleague shows up.)

The first time I visited Aghanistan in May 2000, I was 26 years old, and the country was under Taliban rule. I went there to document Afghan women and landmine victims. At the time, the Taliban had banned photography of any living being, so I snuck around with my cameras in a bag, visited people in their homes in Kabul and the provinces, and claimed I was photographing destroyed buildings left by over two decades of war in the country.

Women on the Front Lines and Behind the Lens

While you can’t necessarily identify if an image was captured by a woman or a man, women still tend to be underrepresented in the photography world — and tend to face unique challenges.

In the five years Baghdad was my home, I got to work (or just hang out) with some of the finest news photographers in the world: Yuri Kozyrev, Franco Pagetti, Kate Brooks, James Nachtwey, Robert Nicklesberg, Lynsey Addario, the late Chris Hondros… the list is as long as it is distinguished. Their immense talent and incredible bravery combined to make the Iraq war arguably the most exhaustively photographed conflict in human history. This selection doesn’t begin to capture the immensity of their collective achievement, but it is evocative of the horrors — and just occasionally, hope — they were able to chronicle.
