At a dinner in New York City, she was awarded The Oliver Rebbot Award for best photographic reporting from abroad in magazines or books for her series “Veiled Rebellion: Afghan Women.” (Click here for photos.)

A citation said: “Lynsey Addario’s photographs give us a comprehensive and intimate look at a largely unseen aspect of Afghan society — its women. Her images are unvarnished, intimate and far-reaching. Addario worked hard to gain access and in doing so produced a very important body of work.”

In March, Addario was among four New York Times journalists—including fellow Westport native Tyler Hicks—held captive in Libya for six days while covering the fighting there. They were released to the custody of Turkish diplomats.
