Her style would be dark or sad. She shows all the hard times all these countries are going through. You can see the depressed and helpless faces of the people in her photos.

Veiled Rebellion by Lynsey Addario

She is a unique photographer because she goes to very dangerous countries knowing what could happen to her to tell a story with her work. She has been kidnapped twice going to these places and she still comes back to them. I like her and her work because she is so motivated to tell the stories of people wherever she goes and nothing or nobody stops her from doing it.

The Displaced by Lynsey Addario

- I feel this photo uses some symmetry because of the one child in the middle and the rest are off to the side and they all kind of have their heads down.

- It looks like light is coming in from the sides of the room onto the children.

-There is a main focus in the photo. It is the child straight down the middle of the room. I think he is so noticeable because the other children's heads in the front are down looking at their papers and his head is up and looking at the board.

- I think the mood of the photo is focus. Every child in the room seems so focused on their work.

- What i like best about the photo is the child in the center. That's where all my attention went to when I first looked at the photo.
