Catching-up with Lynsey Addario

I had the rare pleasure of seeing an actual printed copy of the New York Times a few weeks ago, when Lynsey Addario's story "What Can a Pregnant Photojournalist Cover? Everything" was in the magazine, and included this photo.

The story was an adaptation from her recent book, "It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War". (Don't forget to sign-in with ACP's Amazon Smile link!) Addario did a media tour surrounding the launch of the book, which led to these next few links:

Here's Addario talking to Katie Couric about being pregnant in a war zone: "I was in Senegal, Gaza, Somalia & Kenya. It was fine! Pregnant women live in these countries."

"Certainly in 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' it doesn't say 'don't go to Afghanistan!'"
Here's Addario on Feb. 11th talking to Teri Gross on Fresh Air, and here she is being interviewed on Al Jazeera America. Addario's career is chronicled on her wikipage, and in addition to an ICP Infinity Award, she's a MacArthur Fellow, class of 2009. To keep-up, follow her on twitter!
