Images of Conflict / Somalia, Africa

During his last year of life, Dan Eldon—the son of a British father and American mother who grew up in Kenya—was among a small cadre of journalists who alerted the world to a major famine in Somalia. As many as 1,000 people a day were starving to death when NewsweekTime, and many international daily newspapers began to pick up Dan’s images in 1992.
