Lynsey Addario: ‘I Feel My Odds of Surviving Are Wearing Thin’

Westport award-winning photojournalist Lynsey Addario knows well the dangers of being where the action is and makes a startling frank acknowledgement about her fears in National Geographic.

“Being a conflict photographer seems more dangerous than ever right now—or maybe the longer I do this, the more I feel my odds of surviving are wearing thin,” the 1991 Staples High School graduate wrote in a story on the National Geographic website Friday.

She noted that according to the Committee to Protect Journalists, 70 people in her profession were murdered in 2013 “as a direct reprisal” for their work. Of those, nearly a quarter were photographers.

Addario said she was in the transit lounge at Nairobi Airport on Tuesday following a two-week trip to South Sudan, where she was documenting the civil war, when she learned of the murder of French photojournalist Camille Lepage.
