Lynsey Addario: Before She Went Missing

The New York Times on Wednesday reported that four of its journalists working in Libya were missing, including Lynsey Addario, a prize-winning war photographer who has covered Afghanistan and the Middle East for more than a decade.

The American photographer, who travels nearly 300 days of the year for her work, was briefly kidnapped in 2004 while on assignment in Iraq. Participating remotely in a Daily Beast conference last week, she gave a moving telephone account of her working circumstances for a panel on Women on the Frontlines.
