Matthew Power, 39, died of possible heatstroke while on assignment in Uganda for Men’s Journal. The New York-based magazine reported that Power was covering a British explorer walking the length of the Nile when the journalist collapsed on March 10 and died a few hours later. In announcing the death, the magazine said Power “was a true adventurer and a principled, ethical journalist who never failed to put the accuracy of the story and the fairness in his depiction of a person, place, or situation above what worked for him as a writer. Matt chose the hard way when it was the right way, yet somehow never failed to enjoy the journey.” Power’s articles have also been published in Harper’s, GQ and Outside magazines.
