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.

An Honest Review
20 June 2019 | by generationofswineSee all my reviews

This is one of those movies like "Into the Wild" where people are going to view it and get inspiration from stupidity.

"Into the Wild" was about an idealistic young man who underestimated nature and ultimately met his fate because his ideals didn't exactly mesh well with reality.

"The Journey is the Destination" is pretty much the same, only rather than underestimating nature, he underestimated people and, in specifically, the people that he was working to help.

In one case it was man's disrespect for nature. In this case it was man's disrespect for the dangers presented by his fellow man. He might have been there as a photographer, he might have been championing Africa's cause...but in the end what killed him was the assumption that because he was on their side they would be on his.

In the end it led to his death. He failed to realize that, despite trying to help the people, their hate ran deep enough to kill. Helping them only made him a target.

But, nontheless, it's going to serve to inspire people that mistakenly believe that you have to teach men not to...kill, rape, insert idealistic woke diatribe...rather than take the necessary precautions to protect yourself.

So, what we have is a tragic story that people are going to draw the wrong inspiration from.
