We are excited to announce that The Field Museum will host MacArthur Fellow and Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Lynsey Addario for a free public lecture to celebrate the opening of Women of Vision: National Geographic Photographers on Assignment.
It’s What I Do: An Evening with Renowned Photojournalist Lynsey Addario
Monday, May 16 | 5:30 pm
James Simpson Theatre
Lynsey Addario has survived death threats and kidnappings to bring back powerful images from war-torn regions such as Libya, Iraq, and Afghanistan for National Geographic and The New York Times. She’ll share her heart-pounding story and explain what keeps her going back to places most of us would never venture.
If you are coming from outside of The Field Museum, please enter through the West Entrance (between Lake Shore Drive and the Museum). Additional information is attached.
