Photojournalist Lynsey Addario has built a career traveling through some of the most dangerous parts of the world - covering the Middle East and Africa, active war zones and the after effects of combat.

Her new memoir, "It's What I Do," talks about making it as a woman in a male-dominated field and the importance of remembering the humans in front of the camera.
