More About the Author

Darren McCollester was born in Keene, New Hampshire. He began his career in the world of photography back when there were newspapers, where he photographed essays and wrote stories on topics ranging from teen homelessness, to alcoholism, to the pro-life movement, and the aftermath of war in Kosovo in 1999. In 2000 he took a job with Getty Images where he went on to cover post 9/11, and later as a freelancer the second intifada in Israel, the siege at the Church of the Nativity in 2002, Afghanistan in 2003/2004, the first free election in Iraq in 2005, the mass influx of refugees from Sudan to Chad in 2006, to the murders in Juarez, Mexico in 2009. McCollester continues to work in photography, currently living in Massachusetts, where he covers events big and small, from presidential elections to the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings all the way to Wally The Green Monster handing out snack bars to unsuspecting morning commuters in Copley Square.

His first book, "All The Kennedys Are Dead" an adaptation of his journal from the Chad trip, was published in 2012. He published short stories, "First Kill" a story about big game hunting, and "Burma Local" the story of a bus trip in the wilds of Burma, in 2014.

I enjoyed this book so very much. McCollester brought me into a world that I knew little about--the challenges and obstacles of the photojournalist. McCollester presents the stress of racing for success, the cost and the protection and the care of expensive equipment in a very competitive field. His honesty, his verbal fluency and his humor enhanced my learning and provided me with hours of enjoyment. McCollester's ability to create pictures with words brought me to be able to see, in my mind's eye, McCollester and the soldiers running across the river, McCollester slipping in knee deep water with cameras held above his head trying to protect his work. I feel the cold and poverty in the Serb village. I shudder at his dry heaves at Skopje International Airport and greatly admire his determination and commitment to his career. I loved his scenic 10-mile bike ride and his descriptions of the people and places along the way. I am inspired by his heartfelt stories and journal entries. I am inspired by his endurance and determination to reach his goals. He lets us know that it is not easy, with a clever and entertaining sense of humor. I will be buying this book to give as gifts to friends. I feel sure that anyone will gain from it and receive hours of entertainment, knowledge and pleasure.

When Cartier-Bresson spoke of the "decisive moment" in photojournalism, I doubt he would describe hours spent in an airport customs holding cell as one of them. McCollester's honesty about the boredom, anxiety, self-doubt and loneliness that a photojournalist experiences is what makes this book one of the landmark works on the field. Even more surprising than the author's raw candor is that he resists using his own photographs to tell his story, and instead relies on time-travelling vignettes to draw a picture. The result is a compulsively readable, breathtaking work that should be required reading for any prospective photojournalist.

I have missed hours and hours just reading and I classify myself as one who would rather be doing anything but...However, from page one, I was in it until the end. It is refreshing to discover new material out there and McCollester provides the talent. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I picked up this book because the title intrigued me. i was wondering why anyone would make such a statement...was it because he was older and only interested in the last generation of the Kennedy clan? Or was the author unaware that the next generation of the Kennedys has once again relied upon their familial name in entering the political arena. Little did I realize the irony of the title!

The author presented an hors de oeuvre that whet my taste buds for the remainder of the book as he described in exquisite detail his preliminary encounters in the Third World while in Chad....then he provided the next course with a series of developmental tid bits that held my interest and that left me wondering what the main course might be... I wasn't disappointed!

I thoroughly enjoyed and shared vicariously his wanderings around the planet as he developed from being a young man growing up in a small New England town into that of wizened traveler in his 40's, traveling the world as he became a highly regarded photojournalist employed by Getty Images....The main course was intriguing but not filling. I was left wondering how I was going satisfy the remainder of my appetite.

Now that Getty has moved from the east coast and is in the throes of being purchased....I wonder when dessert will be served?

Format: Paperback
I had some difficulty getting into this book...McCollester has a different writing style than I've experienced before. I felt I was inside his head; not quite stream-of-consciousness but isolated random thoughts. Engaging vignettes, but patchwork. I wanted to know who this guy was; why he thought as he did, some things felt out-of-sequence, but I often wasn't sure if they were or not. And I wasn't getting any answers.

About a third of the way through the book, as I was almost adjusting to this style I realized what was going on. In a sense this book is a verbal representation of the work of a photojournalist. An image is captured and then published. Despite the small caption beneath the image, you don't really know what went on before or after. It is a frozen slice of time. It stands or falls on its own. It just is.

I've never seen this done with prose before. I don't know whether McCollester did this intentionally or as I suspect, it reflects his photojournalist-nature but either way it makes an interesting read on several levels.

Darren is a truly engaging writer. His writing style reminds me of Dean Koontz who I absolutely LOVE! There are all these little vignettes that suck you right in -- short scenes that focus on one moment or give a particular insight into a character, idea, or setting. He travels into a totally different realm and then comes back again. This type of writing appeals to me because you never get bored. You wonder what's next. Darren's personal story is raw, revealing and at times heart wrenching. Thank you for taking the time to journal your experiences, Darren, and for sharing them with us! I can't wait for part 2!!
