Lynsey Addario is no stranger to war. The MacArthur Award-winning photographer has covered conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, embedding herself with soldiers and capturing rare pictures of warlords and civilians caught in the crossfire. She has also survived two kidnappings and a horrific car accident overseas. In her new memoir, "It's What I Do: A Photographer's Life of Love and War," she takes a candid look at her nomadic life and her struggle to find love and motherhood while pursuing a dangerous career.
