James Whitlow Delano is a Japan-based visual storyteller. His work has been published and exhibited throughout the world and led to four award-winning monograph photo books, including, “Empire: Impressions from China” and “Black Tsunami: Japan 2011”.
Projects have been cited with the Alfred Eisenstadt Award (from Columbia University and Life Magazine), Leica’s Oskar Barnack, Picture of the Year International, NPPA Best of Photojournalism, PDN.
In 2015, he founded the EverydayClimateChange (ECC) Instagram feed, where photographers from 6 continents document global climate change on 7 continents.
ECC documents how climate change is not happening “over there” but it is also happening right here and right now. ECC is not a western view on climate change, as the photographers come from the North, the South, the East as well as the West. They are as diverse as the cultures in which we were all raised.
Delano is a grantee of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
