About Eliza & Madelyn
Eliza Deacon, originally from the UK, has lived in Africa for 18 years. Her love of photography started in the early 90s whilst working as a picture editor on the London desk of Reuters News Agency. It was very much due to her time there that she started her travels to far-flung places: Southern Sudan, the old Soviet Union and then Bosnia & Herzegovina, before spending 9 years in the company of elephants in Botswana. Now living in Tanzania, her photography has appeared in the UK and international press and she is about to throw herself into a full-time photography and graphic design career. She is also a contributing photographer to Getty Images.
She and her husband-to-be, a coffee farmer, live between two mountains, Meru & Kilimanjaro, with their 450 acres of arabica coffee spread out on the foothills of “Kili”. With mountains at her back and wide open space spread out in front of her, she can’t imagine life not spent on this continent. Eliza’s website
