GRANTEE

James Whitlow Delano is a Japan-based documentary 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 by the Alfred Eisenstadt Award (from Columbia University and LIFE magazine), Leica’s Oskar Barnack, Picture of the Year International, NPPA Best of Photojournalism, PDN, and others for work from China, Japan, Afghanistan, and Burma (Myanmar), among others. In 2015, he founded EverydayClimateChange (ECC) Instagram feed, where photographers from six continents document global climate change on seven 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 because photographers come from the north, south, east, and the west; and are as diverse as the cultures in which we were all raised.
