FROM Lynsey Addario
Photojournalist Lynsey Addario: "It's What I Do" New York Times photojournalist Lynsey Addario was already well known for pictures from war zones and other troubled places when she was kidnapped in Libya four years ago. She was held for a week with other journalists, then finally released. That close call inspired her to become a mother — but not to quit her dangerous job. "While covering war, there were days when I had boundless courage and there were days… when I was terrified from the moment I woke up." That's a passage from Addario's new memoir It's What I Do: A Photographer's life of Love and War . All photos courtesy of Lynsey Addario.
