The Reuters photographer Eric Gaillard spent a day with 23-year-old Ehab Ali Naser in late September, shedding a light on the everyday experiences of a young refugee in Paris.

Naser travelled hundreds of miles from his hometown of Homs, Syria, to reach the bustling boulevard he now calls home. There, he worked at a souk, or open-air marketplace. In Paris, he’s still finding his footing, living in a bright, blue tent with his few belongings.
