Lynsey Addario was just finding her way as a young photographer when September 11 changed the world. One of the few photojournalists with experience in Afghanistan, she gets the call to return and cover the American invasion. She makes a decision she would often find herself making—not to stay home, not to lead a quiet or predictable life, but to set out across the world, face the chaos of crisis, and make a name for herself.
It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War, by Reportage by Getty Images photographer Lynsey Addario, is the riveting true story of her life and the unique challenges she faces: war, kidnapping, gender bias, and motherhood. The book is now available for pre-order.
