WCC Speaker Series: Photojournalist Lynsey Addario, A Changemaker Event

Mar 20

LT Pick

By focusing on humanitarian and human-rights issues, Lynsey has created an incomparable body of stories and award-winning photography. Since the war began in Ukraine, Lynsey has spent more days on the frontline, on assignment for The New York Times, than she has at home. For her work documenting the Russia-Ukraine war, Lynsey won the prestigious 2023 Polk Award for Photojournalism for a single image that indisputably documents the war crimes being committed in Ukraine, and along with her team of fellow New York Times journalists she won the 2023 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting, for her entire body of work during the war. Despite death threats and multiple kidnappings, she continues walking toward danger and heartache so that we may understand the pivotal stories unfolding around us.
