My name is Luis Tato. I am a Spanish-born freelance photojournalist currently based in Nairobi, Kenya.
I began my visual education studying different drawing and painting techniques. Furthermore, I received a degree in Audiovisual Communication. My career began as a photographer mainly covering the Spain’s Financial Crisis for print media, news agencies and several NGOs. Afterwards, I have been a regular contributor to La Vanguardia newspaper covering daily news. Currently, I am combining my work as a stringer with my own photojournalism projects worldwide since sociology and traveling are my passions. I speak Spanish and English fluently.
My work has been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, CNN, The Guardian, National Geographic, Die Welt, Internazionale, El País, El Mundo or La Vanguardia among others.
