Dan Eldon: Journals of Truth
by Kathy Eldon
Dan Eldon, modern-day Buddha, brave young, photo-journalist. His journey through life has been brief but full of urgency and passion-seeking, sometimes knowing and always questioning the riddle of life, the dichotomy of good and evil, the sickness of our modern world, the fragility of the human condition, the joy of living, the meaning of death, the quest for truth.
His compassion and respect for humanity came from this pursuit. Dan Eldon lived more in twenty-two years than most do in eighty. He traveled through four continents, led expeditions across Africa, wrote a book, worked as a graphic designer in New York, made a film, and was a respected photo-journalist for Reuters, helping trigger an outpouring of international aid with his powerful and disturbing images of Somalia's brutal famine-all before his sudden, violent death in Somalia. This, is a tribute to Dan. To a spirit invincible.
