Today, Getty Images shared a recent interview with American conflict photojournalist, Lynsey Addario. In it, Addario speaks to what drives her as a photographer and what images stand out to her throughout her career.

If the name Addario sounds familiar, it’s likely due to the spotlight that’s been shining on her for the past few weeks. Not only has she published It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War, a New York Times best-selling memoir about her life as a conflict and human rights photographer; it’s also been reported by The Guardian that Steven Spielberg will be directing Jennifer Lawrence, as Addario, in an upcoming biopic.

At just under five minutes, the interview presents a very reminiscent Addario as she walks through some of the most poignant moments in her career. Throughout it, there is slight nudity and graphic content, so consider this a ‘NSFW’ tag for those of you in the office.
