Defying the Odds with Photographer Tom Saater

To see more of his photography, follow @tomsaater on Instagram.

When he was a teenager, Tom Saater (@tomsaater) took photos on the streets of Abuja, Nigeria, a location that doubled as his home. “I started asking tourists or anyone I saw with a camera on the street if they would let me take a few pictures and if they would then send me the photos,” Tom says. “I was sleeping close to the post office during this period of my life, so I would ask strangers to please send my copies of the pictures I had taken with their camera to that post office.” Despite the challenges of his situation, Tom managed to build a portfolio, secure a camera — through the kindness of a tourist — and started landing assignments. Now 31 and based in Lagos, he travels the world to document events like the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (pictured). “Photography is what brought me out of my shell; it was how I was first able to connect with people again. I believe that every human is equal and amazing and I use photography as a way to document and highlight diverse human experiences.” #WorldPhotoDay
