    In Darfur Sandstorm, two soldiers from the Sudanese Liberation Army wait by their truck as they shield themselves from a sandstorm in the northern territory of Darfur, Sudan. This image was used as the cover of Lynsey Addario’s acclaimed book Of Love and War (2018), which focuses on the ethical complexities entwined with documentary photography.

    Lynsey Addario (b.1973) has covered every major conflict and humanitarian crisis of her generation, including in Afghanistan, Iraq, Darfur, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, South Sudan, Somalia, and Congo. In 2015, American Photo Magazine named Addario one of the five most influential photographers of the past 25 years, writing that the photographer 'changed the way we saw the world’s conflicts.' Addario has been the recipient of numerous international awards throughout her career, including the prestigious MacArthur Genius Grant and the Pulitzer Prize in International Reporting in 2009. She regularly works for The New York Times, National Geographic and Time Magazine.
