Photographer and documentary storyteller James Whitlow Delano has made Tokyo his home for over two decades while pursuing his passion for the environment, human rights, and indigenous cultures. James has traveled and photographed extensively throughout Japan, from Kyoto to the famous pilgrimage route in Shikoku, to the northern wonderland of Hokkaido, and beyond. Since 2011, he has documented the aftermath of the Great East Japan earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster, resulting in his fourth book, “Black Tsunami: Japan 2011.” His photography series documenting the 1.5 million sacks of radioactive soil in Fukushima Prefecture on the fifth anniversary of the disaster, was featured by National Geographic. Recently, his work for National Geographic has also focused on documentary projects around the United States/Mexico border. In 2015, James founded the @EverydayClimateChange Instagram feed, where photographers document global climate change on all seven continents. The project has been exhibited around the world. Delano is a grantee at the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting, and his award-winning work has been featured in numerous publications including National Geographic and National Geographic Traveler magazines, The New York Times Magazine, Time, The New Yorker, and Foreign Policy.
