I met Tom on New Years’ day 2019 on the beach in Barcelona. I was taking photos with my Mamiya camera when Tom — a twenty-two-year-old French guy working at a vintage store nearby — came up and asked me what on earth I was doing with this old-school camera. From there we spent the next few days exploring the city, where he immersed me in his community of French people living abroad in Spain. Tom has an endless curiosity for life. He wants to understand and embrace what the world has to offer and how it brings meaning to his existence. He explores the outer world as hungrily as he explores his inner life. And through this, his empathy and love for others is abundant. Directed, Filmed, Edited, and Photographed by Brit Phelan.
