When my sister was packing her stuff up to move across the country, I discovered a book she owned called The Journey is the Destination: The Journals of Dan Eldon. The cover was intriguing, so I opened it up and was immediately drawn in.

Dan Eldon was a photojournalist for Reuters before he was stoned to death by a mob in Somalia in 1993 at the age of 22. As mementos of his short life, he left behind notebooks and notebooks of collages documenting his travels and work. For materials, he used anything and everything he could find, from photocopies and photos to beads and food labels, and they come together beautifully. Below are some samples, but I highly recommend checking out the book in person.
