His work has received many international awards, including the Alfred Eisenstadt Award (from Columbia University and Life Magazine), Leica’s Oskar Barnack and others.  The Mercy Project / Inochi, his charity photo book for hospice received the PX3 Gold Award and the Award of Excellence from Communication Arts.  His new iPad book, Black Tsunami (FotoEvidence), documenting the Japan tsunami and nuclear crisis took a 2012 PX3 Award.

Delano’s presentation will focus on how Bio-fuel is not always "green" or sustainable as an alternative energy.  He will discuss how two indigenous Malaysian peoples-- the Batek and the Penan—have lost much of their rainforest homelands due to local logging and palm oil plantations.
