Lynsey Addario, Missing Photojournalist Whose Work Is at S.F. City Hall, to Be Released

The photojournalist's work is part of "Afghanistan in 4 Frames."

Photojournalist Lynsey Addario and three others working for the news media who recently went missing in Libya are scheduled to be released today, the New York Times reports. Addario's work is featured in a San Francisco Arts Commission exhibit in City Hall called “Afghanistan in 4 Frames.” Meg Shiffler, gallery director for the arts commission, says the show includes work from four photojournalists aiming to express the human side of soldiers in combat. Shiffler says Addario's subjects are all women. She has extensive experience covering war zones. She was recently featured in an audio dispatch on Newsweek's website in which she described the situation in Libya as the most dangerous she has encountered. The four journalists were captured by forces loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, the Times reports.
