Description

The Spring 2023 Gruber Distinguished Lecture will be with Ms. Lynsey Addario, scheduled for March 27, 2023. Ms. Addario covers major conflict zones across the globe, including the Middle East, South Asia, Haiti, and Africa. Most recently, she has covered the war in Ukraine for The New York Times.

A Pulitzer Prize winner, she is a regular contributor to National Geographic, The New York Times, and TIME magazine. In 2015, American Photo Magazine named Lynsey one of five “Most Influential Photographers” of the past 25 years for changing the way we see world conflict. Most recently, she has covered the Coronavirus Pandemic, the Syrian refugee crisis, the ISIS advance in Iraq, the civil war in South Sudan, and the flow of African and Middle Eastern migrants into Sicily. Using her powerful and evocative images, Addario brings audiences to the front lines of the geopolitical and human rights issues plaguing our world. Her presentations offer an intimate look at her perilous work and explain what drives her—despite having a family—to keep running toward the danger. With clarity, beauty, and candor, Lynsey shares, in their most intimate moments, the complex lives of others. Addario began her photography career in 1996 with no formal training or studies. She freelanced for the Associated Press in New York for several years before moving to New Delhi, India to work in South Asia. In 2000, Addario first traveled to Afghanistan to document life and oppression under Taliban rule. She returned to Afghanistan numerous times before 9/11, and then covered conflicts in Iraq, Lebanon, Darfur, Congo, and Libya, where she was among the four New York Times journalists kidnapped in 2011.
