Watch How This Blind Man Uses Instagram To Take Nearly Perfect Pictures

Tommy Edison has been blind since birth, but that hasn’t stopped him from taking artsy photos using Instagram.

Edison is also a well-known film critic who has been endorsed by Roger Ebert. 

“The interesting thing about doing Instagram for me is that I get to take pictures of the world as it sort of goes by,” Edison says.

Edison’s iPhone talks to him as he moves around the screen, which makes it possible for him to navigate through the app.

Edison admits that not all of his pictures come out great, but what he’s able to achieve is still pretty impressive.

Watch the video below to see how Edison uses Instagram. Also, be sure to check out his photos on Instagram.
