Dan Eldon: The Art of Life

No reviews
Dan Eldon, the well-traveled son of an American mother and English father, grew up in Kenya and eventually became one of the first photojournalists to document the famine and anarchy in Somalia in the early 1990s. He died at age 23 while working for Reuters, stoned to death by a mob in Mogadishu reacting to a UN bombing raid. This handsome and touching biography includes many of Eldon's photos and collages as well as entries from his journals, excerpts from letters to his family, and memories from his many friends. The writer, an educational consultant based in Iowa, fell in love with Eldon's work the first time she saw it and became determined to use the art as a launching pad for educational materials--a project his family embraced. c.
