The Cloister Ballroom

Lynsey Addario National Geographic

Why would anyone willingly plunge headfirst into the war-torn areas of Afghanistan, Darfur, or Libya? For photojournalist Lynsey Addario, the short, simple answer is also the title of her memoir: It’s What I Do. In focusing on humanitarian and human-rights issues, Lynsey has built her career on capturing powerful images in dangerous environments around the world. Despite death threats and kidnappings, she continues photographing pivotal subjects for National Geographic, the New York Times, and Time. Recently, Warner Brothers optioned her best-selling memoir, It’s What I Do, for a film about her life, starring Jennifer Lawrence as Lynsey.

Join the Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist as she chronicles her harrowing work and explains what drives her—despite having a family—to keep going back.

Please note: This presentation contains graphic images suitable only for mature audiences.
