Dan Eldon Diaries on Display for charity

Recommended Posts

Fans able to travel to London will have an opportunity to view some of Dan Eldon's journals. A exhibition of diaries will be shown at Gallery Seven (Covent Garden) in May to support the anti-poverty youth charity Ctrl.Alt.Shift and the work that they are doing with young peple in Kenya.

"The show will consist of some of the best examples of journal writing you're ever likely to come across. It's a wide spectrum ranging from the intellectual musings of Anais Nin to the angst of Kurt Cobain to a rare collection of the diaries of ordinary people. For those that can't face the idea of reading, the show will also have an audio-visual flavour complete with comfortable seating to heighten the pleasure."

"The exhibition lets you peek at the visual journals of Dan Eldon, a British Kenyan journalist who was killed by a Mogadishu mob aged just 23. You can also explore the work of unknown diarists over the last century, chronicling historical events of enormitude, and listen to audio diaries, including one by a South African teenager living with AIDS. Heightening the voyeuristic pleasure are teenage rantings from Courtney Love, Richard Herring and The Secret Diary of (Twin Peaks') Laura Palmer."'Ctrl.Alt.Shift presents Dear Diary' runs until 23rd May at Gallery Seven, 22 Earlham Street, Covent Garden.
