We just learned that Dave died last May while on a photographic project in Rwanda. Here is a blog entry from Kimberly Coats who had been working with him at the time of his death, and here is an obituary from the Daily Telegraph in which the above photo appeared. This guy had many lives, after we knew him he went on to live in Switzerland and be a significantly known photographer published in National Geographic and other similar magazines. We met up with him in June 2007 in Boulder at our second 1977 Pole Souls reunion, he told us of some of his exploits including his move to Switzerland, but he did not share some of the stories about being one of the first people into Rwanda after the genocide, or about almost being killed in Uganda.
Below, several pictures of Dave...first from our 2007 reunion dinner...
