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.

Wonderful way to immerse yourself in Dan's Life!
30 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

A powerful homage to the life of Dan Eldon, his dedication to the work he was doing and the relentlessness of his spirit. I think this film did a very good job of balancing the brutality of the conflict with the beauty of life in Africa, and the hope that can be found even in the darkest of times. Other reviews have mentioned privilege and 'lack of perspective', though truly his mission was to provide perspective about the conflict to those in real positions of power in the west. To enlighten them and correct the blindness that was the norm at the time. All this to say, even if you aren't in love with the film, you will fall in love with Dan and in turn, his love of life.

I would urge you all to do more research about him and get involved with his continued legacy!
