The Journey is the Destination: The Journals of Dan Eldon by Dan Eldon & Kathy Eldon: (Chronicle Books, Revised Edition 2017)


Description: The best-selling and critically acclaimed book The Journey is the Destination features a selection of over 200 pages from the journals of photojournalist Dan Eldon.  It is a legacy of a young artist killed just as his creative powers were beginning to be recognized by himself and others.  Already an international inspiration for a documentary, feature film, a clothing line, and the Spring 2011 collection of Tom's Shoes.  Dan's life sets an admirable example of how to be young, human and alive and will continue to inspire future generations as it has for the past decade.

Safari as a Way of Life by Jennifer New: (Chronicle Books, 2011)


Description: Photojournalist Dan Eldon left behind much more than the astonishing illustrated journals that would form The Journey is the Destination when he lost his life at age twenty-two while on assignment in Somalia.  He also bequeathed a life story that has inspired students, teachers, artists and creative activists - as well as a forthcoming film, an apparel line and the Spring 2011 collection from Tom's Shoes.  Raised in Kenya, Dan grew up with a unique outlook on life.  Through adventurous safaris and benevolent crusades around the world, he crafted a philosophy of curiosity, creativity and charity.  This unique visual biography showcases previously unpublished artwork from Dan's acclaimed journals, letters and snapshots that take readers on a journey through Dan's life and beyond, exploring the impact made by this remarkable artist on everyone who has encountered his story.

Dan Eldon: The Art of Life by Jennifer New & Kathy Eldon: (Chronicle Books, 2001)


Description: Only 22 when he lost his life on assignment in Somalia, photojournalist Dan Eldon left behind much more than the journals that became the basis for Chronicle's best-seller The Journey is the Destination.  He left a lifetime of adventures that continue to inspire.  Raised in Kenya, he took numerous expeditions across Africa that helped him to understand and love the continent.  Through his safaris and benevolent crusades - and with interludes of study and work in the US and London, and trips around the world - he crafted a philosophy of curiosity, creativity, adventure and charity.  Intensely visual, like the life it describes, Dan Eldon: The Art of Life is more than a biography.  It is an exploration of one man's will to take in everything life has to offer; an example of a life lived for and art experienced as life."
