Photojournalist Wins Genius Award

Photojournalist Lynsey Addario has been named a MacArthur Fellow for 2009. The award comes with a $500,000 grant over five years to pursue her work unfettered by financial concerns and is often referred to as a “Genius Award.” If you wander through her portfolio, you’ll see her sense of light is very strong, bringing a beauty to some truly horrific scenes.
