It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War by Lynsey Addario
Genna says: “Woah, this girl is a rock star! Addario is an award-winning photojournalist (Pulitzer Prize winner and MacArthur Fellow) who covered much of the war, conflict, and injustices in Iran, Afghanistan, Haiti, the Congo, and Darfur. Addario was kidnapped for six days in Libya along with other New York Times photographers. Even after the incident she still got back into the field. Addario’s passion for photographing the world is apparent, and her unflinching strength and courage is inspiring. Her memoir recounts the struggles trying to stay in touch with family while living across the world, her difficult romantic relationships, and the discrimination she faced in other countries being a woman.
