It’s What I Do by Linsey Addario

I have been a fan of Linsey Addario’s stunning work for a long time and I am an even bigger fan of her memoir.  It is a bold, raw and unflinching commentary about the ravages of war and an on the ground account of what it is like to be documenting everything from the front lines.  Her story includes coverage of the people living under the Taliban regime, the genocide in Darfur, the violence in the Congo and even her own kidnapping by pro-Qaddafi forces. Her courage, tenacity and moxie in the face of such destruction, fear and suffering radiates through the pages, and her beautiful photos haunt this amazing story.  Steven Spielberg is set to direct the upcoming film adaptation and Jennifer Lawrence is slated to play Addario.
