Storyline

Dan Eldon, who was only 22 when he was chased down and killed by an angry mob in Somalia, was one of the youngest photographic stringers in Africa. But his journalistic work, which had appeared in Time and Newsweek, showed only a small part of his talent. Eldon excelled as an artist in his collages, which combined his photographs of Africa with paint, pastiche, pop culture images, advertising, and official documents. The Journey Is the Destination collects pages from the 17 scrapbooks that held his art. Chronicling his work from age 14 through his death at 22, this volume is startling not only in the intensity and thoughtfulness of the pages, but also in the fact that someone so young could have this kind of artistic depth and insight.

Tepid and uninspired
15 March 2018 | by cranstonisagod-22225See all my reviews

The first half was like watching an afternoon school special of spoiled expats living the vida loca in Africa, taking road trips, eating rats, and making fun of the indigineous people. The second half could have used a steady cam. I'm sure he was a great guy, but what about the other three that died with him?
