Lynsey Addario

You are a brave wonderous creature! Last week, I had the honor of meeting the photojournalist Ms. Addario at an event that I hosted. She was recently granted a MacArthur Fellowship and won a Pulitzer Prize. Aside from those large medals of achievement, her work speaks volumes and reminds us how powerful and brilliant humanity is. Her photos capture humanitarian issues and grapple with regions in conflict: the Congo, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Darfur. Places that most of us would rather turn a blind eye to, too much violence, too much death, too much soiled humanity. But Lynsey captures these events, regions, lives with so much rigor, attention, care, and compassion. You make us more aware of our movements. I thank you. I celebrate her on this page and not her work, though you can find her brillance here:
