The inherent tension and contrast in James Whitlow Delano’s photography sets his work apart.
American-born reportage photographer James Whitlow Delano has lived in Asia for the last 20 years, documenting stories in this region and beyond. His extensive body of work on social, cultural and environmental issues has covered everything from China’s rapid rise to the global sex workers industry and stories from the United States/Mexican border. Delano is distinguished by his high contrast black & white style, imparting a dreamlike poignancy to his photographs. He works simply, armed only with a Leica M camera with a single lens, a 35mm.
