Lynsey Addario Profile Information

  • Pictured above for @nymag, a house for sale for $22,000, in Holmes County at the edge of the Mississippi Delta May 31, 2012. When the state of MIssissippi integrated its schools, many white families fled, shuttering the businesses and industry in downtown Jackson, and across the state. Often linked to poverty and unemployment, Mississippi has some of the highest rates of diabetes, obesity, infant mortality, AIDs, among other ailments, in the country, and though millions of federal funds have been thrown at the problems for years, conditions have only gotten worse.

I've spent most of my career documenting conflict, humanitarian crises, and women's issues across the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia. After more than a decade away, I began shooting back home in the United States, documenting some of the country's most important issues, including healthcare, immigration, racism, and the justice system, among other topics. I'll be posting some of these images here, dating back to 2012.

  • At an evening meal, Muslims from Chicago’s South Side break their Ramadan fast. Inner-City Muslim Action Network, a community organization formed two decades ago, sponsored the event. Rami Nashashibi, the organization’s founder, started it to promote social change, the arts, and healthy living in the city’s poorer neighborhoods.

This image was shot for a @natgeo story, “How Muslims, Often Misunderstood, Are Thriving in America”, with a great piece by @leilafadelnpr and portraits by @waynelawrence.

Every day more than 800 women around the world die from complications related to pregnancy and childbirth, without access to quality medical facilities and healthcare professionals. Between 60 and 70% of these deaths are preventable, and while most are in the developing world, the United States has one of the worst maternal mortality rates of developed nations, second only to Serbia. The report by @lynseyaddario, titled "Maternal Mortality,” covers the situation in a number of countries over a span of 10 years: Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, India, the Philippines, Somaliland, and the United States.

Pictured is an image from the report. The caption: Mamma Sessay, who died from a massive hemorrhage after giving birth to twins at Magburaka Government hospital, will now be buried in her village. Sierra Leone, May 2010.
