“When I started working as a caregiver in 2018, I asked for my client’s permission to photograph him and write down our conversations. We weathered the pandemic together, spending most of our time out in nature, hiking and cross-country skiing in the Jemez. Despite our 50-year age gap (he’s 93 and I’m 43), we’ve developed a close friendship, and his love for the wilderness is contagious!”

Mr. Brown was an electrical engineer at Los Alamos National Laboratory. 

Anna Yarrow is a student at UNM-LA and a LANL Foundation scholar, pursuing a degree in Emergency Medical Services. She delights in sharing her unique way of seeing and experiencing the world from an autistic perspective. 

The World Beautiful is a heartwarming true story of friendship between a 93-year-old Los Alamos mountaineer and his caregiver, depicting their outdoor adventures through vignettes, photography, conversation, and song. 

Developed and directed by Christine McHugh.
